As Russia continues military exercises on Ukraine's eastern border, leaders in Kiev say they fear an invasion could come at any time. Thousands of Russian troops are reportedly massed within just a few miles.

At a first glance, Petropavlovka may appear sleepy and peaceful, but if Russia decides to invade Ukraine, President Vladimir Putin's tanks might roll across the fields of this eastern Ukrainian village first.

FRANCE 24 has spoken to residents, who say, however, that they are more afraid of the new authorities in Kiev than the overhanging threat of a Russian invasion.

For the full story, watch FRANCE 24’s report on the player above.
