In Ukraine, Residents Keep Calm And Stock The Bomb Shelters
Euro News reports that it was 5 am when Kostyantyn Achkasov woke to the sounds of explosions and planes roaring overhead.
He immediately got out of bed and went online where his worst fears were confirmed: Vladimir Putin's Russia had invaded Ukraine.
Kostyantyn, 33, spent Thursday holed up in his brother's house in Kharkiv, north-east Ukraine, with his mother. He has no idea when they will be able to leave.
"Right now, everybody is staying at home. People have put fuel in their cars or got groceries. We are all waiting for the instructions from the government. It’s not safe to travel," he said.
