Sobbing Ukrainian dad says goodbye to his daughter in heartbreaking viral video
In a viral heart-breaking video, a Ukrainian dad is seen sobbing as he says goodbye to his daughter and partner before staying back to defend the country from the ongoing full-scale attacks from Russia. The emotional video shows the dad fixing his daughter's woolen hat. He then hunches over and buries his face into his daughter’s little pink coat before breaking into tears.
Watching her dad sob, the little girl also starts crying and the video continues to get painful to watch as his partner and daughter board the bus. At the end of the video, the dad gently touches the window of the coach his daughter is on. It is not clear where the video was filmed, but with Russian forces pushing through the territory of Ukraine, people are crowding railway stations and roadways to evacuate the war-hit cities in huge numbers.
A witness revealed that families are being forced to choose to split up as women and children are being escorted to areas of safety. “Families are being forced to take the agonising decision to split up. Women and children are heading to the safe zones while the men stay behind to fight to protect their homes,” he said.

Another witness from Ukraine said, “People didn’t really evacuate before the invasion as no one believed Putin would actually go through with it. But now they are finding whatever form of transport they can to get out — even going to neighboring countries such as Moldova.”
Sources revealed that school children in Donetsk are being trained by soldiers to take cover in the event a bomb goes off. Children in Ukraine were seen sitting on shelves in makeshift shelters with their knees pulled to their chests after being marched out of their classrooms.
As we enter day two of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, more and more chilling images, videos, and information are being made available, indicating the full scale of the crisis. Russia is not just running a bombing campaign of major Ukrainian cities but is also rolling in tanks from the Belarusian border. The Air Force is also involved in the campaign, and on February 24, we have come to learn of the Russian Navy's involvement as well.
