New Delhi: Ukraine continues to witness chaos and devastation on Friday morning after Russia launched a military operation targeting its southern neighbour’s defence infrastructure on orders given by Russian President Vladimir Putin. The world leaders have termed the invasion as the “darkest hours of Europe World War II” which has caused panic among the citizens in Ukraine.

Several heart-wrenching photos and videos from the war sights, as well as citizens fleeing from the war-torn country, are going around the internet. People all over the world are taking to social media to share those photos and videos which are becoming viral in no time.

One such video surfaced on the internet, where a dad can be seen giving an emotional farewell to his daughter in Ukraine’s Kyiv. The viral video shows the teary-eyed man kissing his daughter who is also crying. The man eventually breaks down and wails as he gives a final hug to his daughter before helping her get onto a rescue bus for civilians out of Kyiv.

As reported by CNN, the man did not accompany his daughter as he decided to defend his country. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Thursday that the government will lend weapons to all Ukrainian civilians who wish to defend their country against Russian aggression. “For all those who have not yet lost their conscience in Russia, it is time to go out and protest against the war with Ukraine. We will lift sanctions on all citizens of Ukraine who are ready to defend our country as part of the territorial defense with weapons in their hands,” he said.

Meanwhile, civilians in other countries including countries belonging to the EU such as the United Kingdom and the United States have taken to the streets to protest against Russia’s invasion. Even the G7 leaders agreed on “devastating packages of sanctions” against Russia. Besides, Prime Minister Narendra Modi called for a “return to the path of diplomacy” and appealed to Putin in a telephonic conversation for immediate closure of violence between Russia and Ukraine.
