“More remarkable footage emerged today as the war in Ukraine entered its third day.
Locals and cameramen captured the latest developments in the bloody conflict in eastern Europe, as Ukraine refuses to surrender amid an onslaught of Russian attacks.
It comes as the president emerged on Saturday morning defiant and determined in the face of Russian advances on his capital city, vowing to fight Vladimir Putin‘s forces.
