"It feels like a terrible dream. It's been almost two days but I just can't believe this is happening," said San Diego resident Roman Chyrkov.

BALBOA PARK (KUSI) – As the world watches Russia invade Ukraine, local San Diegans with ties to the country made their voices heard through protests and vigils this week.

KUSI’s Matt Prichard was live in Balboa Park from Friday night’s vigil with more details.
