In 2022, Russia began the war in Ukraine. During this time, thousands of civilians were killed, dozens of cities and villages were destroyed, millions of people were forced to leave their homes. But the war forced not only Ukrainians to flee. During this time, hundreds of thousands of Russians have left Russia because they do not want to be part of a country that is an aggressor. Because this is not their war. One of the most popular destinations for Russian immigrants became Istanbul.

The shooting was carried out in autumn 2022.
