The networks show the first terrible images of the Russian attack in Ukraine | Digital Trends Spanish

In the early hours of Thursday, February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the start of a massive attack by his armed forces in Ukraine. The president mentions a “special military operation” with the aim of “demilitarizing” this country. According to Moscow, its intention is to disarm and try those who are attacking the independent republics of Donetsk and Luhansk.

Since Putin’s announcement, various news agencies, both international and local, have reported explosions in multiple cities. Social networks are also working as a canvas to show the world what is happening in the Eastern European country.

Several live broadcasts and other videos from Ukraine have captured images of Russian collapsed areas, explosions, missiles and warplanes in the sky over the country.

Videos have also been shared in which you can clearly hear how anti-aircraft alarms sound for the first time since World War II in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine.

In this video we can not only hear the alarms, but also see how people are trying to flee the city in their vehicles.

The subway has become a place of refuge

In the last few hours, the Kiev metro stations have been converted into makeshift bunkers. Several videos and photos shared on the networks show citizens and families protecting themselves under the roof of the subway, carrying their belongings and organizing themselves in groups.

It can also be seen that although services such as the train and the subway are still operating normally, most of the local businesses have not opened their doors today.

The Kiev metro works despite the attack launched by Russia against Ukraine. The underground kiosks are almost all closed, except for these flower shops (incredible) and some cafes on the go… People are of course very nervous
