Wladimir & Vitali Klitschko Share Emotional Footage Of Meeting Ukrainian People In Kyiv Subway Station

Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko have visited Ukrainian people taking shelter in a Kyiv subway station as the country continues to fight back against Russia. You can watch it below.


Russia invaded Ukraine last week and Vladimir Putin's troops have ramped up their assault on a number of key cities.

The Klitschkos are former boxing heavyweight champions and Vitali is currently mayor of Kyiv.


Both brothers have passionately fought for the country and their people, with the duo now taking to the streets to check on those impacted by the conflict.

A young woman can be seen crying as Wladimir enters the station and she immediately approaches the 45-year-old for a hug.

Wladimir engages in conversation with a number of people inside the station and happily takes pictures with them all.


He then approaches a woman with her dog, before giving the dog a huge cuddle and taking a selfie with it.

A tweet accompanying the video reads: "Visited people in shelter in one of Kyiv’s subway stations.

"#StandTogether #Ukraine #Kyiv #united #StopThisWar."

The duo have said they will die for their country after pledging to take arms and fight for their future.


"Thousands, already tens of thousands, are killed in this war against Ukraine. And this number will unfortunately only grow," Vitali said per Fox News.

"We are not going to surrender. We have nowhere to retreat.

"The situation is tense, people are worried.


"The city needs peace and peaceful skies…

"Kyiv residents have been in their basements nonstop for a week now because of air raid alarm going off all the time."

It was reported on Friday that Russian forces have occupied Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, one of the biggest in the country.

Per Spectator Index, the United States have said it is a 'war crime to attack a nuclear power plant' and Putin's 'reign of terror' has now taken another step forward.
