Many Ukrainians have taken refuge in underground tunnels and metro stations; to take cover in the ground, fearing that they would be affected by the Russian missile attacks on their country.


Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine on Thursday morning, shortly after President Vladimir Putin announced that.

The mayor of Kiev said 4 metro stations with no trains in operation were now being used as shelters.

A number of Ukrainian citizens and foreign communities have sought refuge in tunnels under buildings, which are secured against missile launchers.

A member of the Egyptian community in Ukraine, Taher El-Sayed, said that he  has taken refuge with dozens of residents of the building where he resides in the Ukrainian city of Kharkiv, for protection from Russian attacks, fearing for his life.

Kharkiv is the second largest city in Ukraine after the capital, Kiev, and is at the heart of the Russian military operation, as it is about 35 kilometers from the border with Moscow.

He pointed out that the tunnel in which he is staying has so far accommodated 50 people, while hundreds have resorted to sitting in underground metro stations in Ukraine.

A state of fear and anxiety has prevailed since Thursday morning, when residents of Ukrainian cities woke up to the sound of missile attacks, announcing a Russian invasion of their country, after days of threat.

The Ukrainian Border Guard Service confirmed in a statement that Russian forces had entered the Kiev region from Belarus to carry out an attack with "Grad" missiles on military targets.

Unidentified helicopters were observed flying in groups at low altitude in a suburb of the Ukrainian capital, Kiev.
