Tetyana Otroshchenko, a retired small shop owner who was watching her 5-year-old grandson Timofey jump around in the playground, said she needed to travel north to near the border with Russia to visit a relative's grave - but was afraid.

For Otroshchenko, the West can negotiate with Russia all its wants - as long as it keeps Ukraine safe.

''I trust the West, they are doing the right thing,'' Otroshchenko said. ''Because it is impossible for our government to deal Putin if the West does not help.''
