Sounds you can hear behind us is Russian artillery hitting the city.
Just wanted to destroy this civilization. - This is my house. - This is your house?
So, what you're saying is this —— is more scary than World War II?
Every man will fight. Bits of ——. —— smell.
This is Russian world. Destruction everywhere. When they go outside, they feel like they're playing lottery with their life.
Your and her heart are near. Unexploded —— here,
destroyed buildings everywhere, the air raid sirens going off in the background. This one's completely burnt out.
It's probably one of the —— cities in the world at the moment. Let's see how this goes. It's really quite hard for me to convey how many —— holes are here.
Now we've been told to stay right here because they expect that a Russian counter artillery...
Welcome back to Kyiv, the capital city of Ukraine here. Walking down the streets, you can see here there's a sign behind me,
a road sign with a number taped up, and that's in case there were some Russian spies with drones,
or surveillance, or anything, so they can't really triangulate —— attacks or whatever,
so you know that gives a sign of the tenseness of the city. There is normal life, returning restaurants, and things,
but a few days ago there was a —— ——, so, you know, you never really know, but today we're heading to Bucha and Irpin,
two cities that were absolutely decimated during the war. We're going to meet a local young man
who was there during the Russian occupation of his city. It's about an hour or so drive there, I believe.
Might be a bit difficult in places, you have to be careful of some of the routes. I think they're clearing them up, but there have been reports of land —— on the road
and as the Russians were fleeing, leaving booby traps like under toys, and rubble and things, so let's get on the road now, drive and see more of what's going on in this country currently,
it's heavy.
So, we're currently going around this bridge because it's been ——.
Okay, so we've been driving for about 45 minutes, and you can just see absolute scenes of destruction,
a few —— checkpoints. This is actually the entrance to Irpin here and just destroyed buildings everywhere.
This is a bridge behind me, that's a temporary bridge, this one's been ——. I've been told to watch my step because there could be booby traps
that the Russians left when they left this place. They put sometimes lines along the ground,
and then you could kick them with your foot and a —— goes off, or a —— of sorts, or they'll put like a toy, or a bottle, or something
and if you move that, you can set off an ——, so you've got to really watch where you're putting your feet around here, from what I've been told.
So, we made it through another —— checkpoint and this is one of the first buildings we're greeted with.
When the Russians originally left Irpin and Bucha, and surrounding places they were just —— on the street,
children, women, pets, everything ——, I mean, just look.
You can see cars here just littered with —— ——. This car here is a Lithuanian car, you see how many —— ——,
it's really quite hard for me to convey how many —— —— are here. All these fences along here, you might not be able to make it out on camera,
but is just absolutely sprayed with —— ——. So, what was this building, did you say?
- Someone's flat. - Civilian home? Yeah, it's just a civilian home, maybe it was a shop or something like,
I don't know, just right now it's hard to define what it was. These little pots over here, could that be a trap?
It can be, never try to open such a stuff because inside maybe a —— or something like.
Because it looks quite out of place right? Because everything's destroyed and there's a little pot. They were building all that to live, and now they have no place to live at all
and all their lives are ruined, and I don't know whether these people are alive even.
So, you have to be very careful to stand on other people's footprints here. Booby traps all over the places with grenades, or ——, so we need to be careful.
This is just goes on and on. This is a small part of it, every building around here that I can see is destroyed.
So, we're just walking along the footpath here and down here is a toy ——.
We've been strictly told do not touch this because it could be some kind of trap.
See a children's playground here, —— —— in the slide and up there on that residential building there,
there's a hole which could have potentially been a tank right into the side of that. Just come along the road here and there's some people with a dog
having a fire, cooking some food, they've got some things they want to share.
They started to —— all over the place from both sides of the building,
so there were no place to hide. All the glass were broke, and they needed to hide,
so they came in the corridor because the walls are a little bit bigger and harder, so they can hide.
They were just hiding there for three or four days. What the Russians are saying is that they're aiming for only —— targets,
can you ask her if that's true? —— civilians and destroying all civil infrastructure.
She's trying to clean up everything and cover the windows,
make this place livable, but she's afraid what she's going to do when the winter will come
because now it's not as cold as it will be in winter or in autumn, even.
Here they were hiding because the walls are quite thick and just sitting like that, many people over here in order to keep their lives.
There were six of them, and they were aiming her with the ——, so she was very scared.
So, the Russians pointed —— to her? They're 18 years old or something like, Russians,
but they did not —— her, but they were aiming in order to scare her.
Lots and lots of missiles landed in the river over there,
so still there are lots of them there, maybe they are ——, I don't know. So, they haven't been exploded, and they're sitting in the river?
She's said that 100 meters actually, or maybe 150, and they were very lucky that they wanted to —— this living sector over there,
but Russians are not the best warriors, and they missed.
—— flight inside the building and the floor felt on the down floor, can you imagine.
Here it's the parts of the ——, you may see, and ——.
If it comes in the leg, or somewhere, it's just... So, you were just saying about that people think
that you would —— instantly in something like this, but you were saying with the ——, and the debris, and things,
sometimes you bleed to ——. Yeah, usually you —— because of bleeding because you cannot stop the bleed.
If you could say one thing to Putin, what would that be?
For the whole planet... For us, all the Ukrainians...
For the whole people of the world... Right now, he is the enemy number one, he's ——.
Every time she hears something, then she feels like there's an attack coming. Yeah, yeah, even I can feel when someone,
the dog is barking near, or some noise, I feel stressed, but I lived in Kyiv where I heard far away this bombing
she has been sitting in the place where it's —— right here and at her flat, at her house, I can't even imagine
what she feels when she hears these noises, a barking of the dog, or a car moving fast.
Obviously, no electricity or hot water.
No electricity, no hot water, no water at all. - You've been sleeping here? - She's been sleeping here.
And then there are more rooms in there, but she's too scared to go in there because it's close to the wall. I don't know actually, it's all blocked right now.
But the other side, like that's her house as well, but she's too scared to go in there? - Yeah, yeah. - Right.
- What's the dog's name? - Bonia.
Okay, beautiful. And your name? - Halina. - Nick, nice to meet you.
She says you have very cold hands. Yeah, I mean I'm cold, but I'm here for five minutes,
you live here, you know, I can't imagine.
She's making tea all the time and sitting near the fire, so she can keep her hands warm,
and she's trying to cover herself with clothes, now it's almost summer, it's just spring,
but she has been here when it was -20ºC -10ºC, so I don't know how she survived.
You're a lot stronger than me. Can you explain for somebody like me who's never been under a ——,
what's the ground, is everything shaking, what's going on?
She felt like it's a 10 point earthquake over here,
they thought they would —— right here. It's like the hardest earthquake you can imagine.
So, we've driven to just near the railway station here in Irpin destroyed railway bridge here.
It was colder inside that house than it was outside the building, and she's just sleeping on blankets on the hard floor in that freezing cold weather.
There are construction workers here fixing these bridges and things, they're trying to get things back to normal, but yeah.
There's a soldier coming towards me, he probably wants to see what I'm doing, so better go and see him.
So the —— guy was on the other side of the river and just asking for my credentials and things.
I do actually have —— accreditation here to film, which has been super helpful so far, I've needed to show it a few times.
Now we're going to Bucha, a town that faced some terrible, terrible things,
but I'd rather you hear it from the locals directly. I'm gonna go meet a young man called Pasha who lives there,
and he was there during the Russian occupation.
So, on the way to Bucha, we've just stopped off at this bridge here. If you've seen some photos of the war in Ukraine
you might have seen this bridge, the iconic scene of the war, it's...
Have a look.
This is...
So, they've now built a side road there, but you can see, you know, taking out all this infrastructure to stop logistics
and movements during the war is a big goal. I've seen some photos of people evacuating before they built this side road,
and they would have to abandon their car there, some of them might even still be in Irpin and things, and outside of Ukraine to the west,
they've left everything behind here and headed to a safer place. Who knows when they'll come back.
There's some incredible photos that you'll see on the screen now of people hiding underneath this bridge waiting to be evacuated,
and they were hiding under the bridge in case of more strikes. There's a pram here, wonder what story that tells.
So, we've arrived in Bucha. To relay the scale to you of the destruction is almost impossible.
I mean, I'm showing you lots of destroyed buildings and things, but there's many more. About 420 people were —— here, mass —— up against walls and things.
We've come to the McDonald's, you can see it's all smashed out. Cool, so we've met a local man called Pasha.
Yes, hello. And you said that your grandmother lived on the third floor here. Yes, third floor she lived there but when it was ——, she was underground with us.
So, she was already hiding when this happened, luckily. Yes, and in the next day when I came in here to see it,
I went back to my grandma and tell that her flat is on fire,
she said, —— Russian, take my flat and go away. Some people —— in here?
Yes, because here was a humanitarian stop. Oh, really? So, this is where people would come to get food and water,
and the Russians targeted that? Yes, because here was Ukrainian —— defense, territory defense,
and they see it, and they don't understand that —— defense it means that people come here to take food, to take water, not to ——,
it's only for food and water for people. And did you ever expect this to happen in your city of Butcher?
Could you ever imagine that you'd wake up one day and... No, I didn't imagined, I'm having old days flashbacks,
wake up, I see how it was in my city, it's like a video game. You can't believe it? I can't believe it, but now people understand that it can repeat in one day.
So, you think that it might happen again? Yes, if Putin is president in his country, in Russia, I think it will never end.
- Really? - Yes. So, the guys have just picked up some potatoes and basic needs, eggs and things
and we're taking these to an old lady, right? Yeah.
We've come into this nice lady house. Would you like to introduce this lady for us? Her name is Irina Alexandrina, she was born in 1942.
She's embarrassed about being a little bit dirty because it helped her to survive, she's telling.
The dressing gown? Yeah, she's happy to wear it because it's helped. Tell her not to worry.
There's a really interesting point that I think we should talk about, about people having to wear white to signify
that they are part of the Russian invasion. Russians were wearing these white stripes on their hands
to represent that they are part of Russian —— formations in order not to fire on each other.
Then they started getting the civilians to do the same? They asked civilians also to wear these white stripes on their hands, on their heads,
on their legs, to reflect that they are part of Russian world in order not to fire in them,
but they automatically may be in danger because Ukrainian army attacked people who are in white stripes,
so it was very hard for Ukrainian —— forces to recognize whether it's a civilian or it's —— forces.
Maybe because of that, it's one of the points why Russians asked civilians to wear that
to make all the same mass of people. Like hostage, to cover by hostage, you know. It's a human shield.
Yeah, like a human shield. Our soldiers were in such a situation where they need to decide
whether to —— or not, to look where they're shooting, so they were breaking this war rules by this, as I think.
So, the Russians were hoping that the Ukrainian soldiers would accidentally —— civilians. —— civilians or will not —— at all,
and they have more time before you look whether it's a civilian or not because he has this stripe and maybe sometimes Russian soldiers in civilian form,
maybe with a —— or something like and this white stripe, so our soldier need to decide, he's wasting time and Russian soldier may —— him at this time.
If you do not wear this white stripe, they will fire at you. A man was moving somewhere, and they —— him
just because he moved without this stripe.
She said it is very —— to move without the stripe.
Some guys said that they don't want to wear this white stripes
because they don't want Russian signs on them. Those who said I don't want to wear this white —— did not...
- ——? - Yeah, yeah. They called it, I don't know why, they called it as she says,
so they think maybe that Russians are ——.
Our local Ukrainians were burying people in front of their houses because they had no possibility to bury in a cemetery.
Maybe in five or ten meters near the house many people were buried.
Many people were asking to help to bury someone who was —— and lying on the street
because dogs were eating people and carrying them all over the place, you know, parts.
- Seriously? - Yeah. So, like street dogs were carrying around body parts? Street dogs were eating and carrying ——, and you know,
pulling up the meat of the bones, so decided to bury people where they are
and then later bury them normally. So, a lot of these donations come from other countries,
for example, these noodles are from France, so, you know, if you're in Europe somewhere and there's an Ukraine food collection
then you know the food does get to places like this where it's really needed for vulnerable people.
So, you were born during World War II, could you ever imagine that something like this would come to your very doorstep all these years later?
She says that's lots of families who live part of them in Ukraine, part of them in Russia,
it was a lot of brotherhood on her memory between the nations,
and she couldn't imagine even if in a dream that such a situation may happen.
She didn't realize that Russians would destroy our famous Mriya Aircraft.
Because that happened at the start, right, of the war? Yeah. Is the biggest airplane in the world, right? Yeah, and she was engaged in building this plane.
- Is that right? - Yeah, yeah. For her, it's like something that she couldn't imagine, it's like Russians not just destroyed the city she lives,
they also destroyed the work of all her life. Do you have a message for Russia and the Russian people specifically,
not the government, but the people? I'd tell them to stop and think about what they're doing,
how can you kill children, they've got mothers. There was a Russian tank with 18-year-old inside,
they're just children, they don't understand. They were told we are going to do —— exercises,
but it's not exercises if they kill people, if there were —— —— here on the street, it's impossible
and those women who support this, I just appeal to them, I ask them to stop and think about who they are supporting.
They stole everything from some people I know, they also smashed everything. The Russian soldiers asked the people I know to give them a VHS to watch a movie
they told them everything we've got is on flash drives in cities, the Russian soldiers said this can't be, let us kill you.
All grandmas and mothers ask Putin to stop,
to think about what he's doing, and to stop. Spasiba. Thank you very much, spasiba.
Spasiba. Can you tell her good luck?
Not yet.
So, we've come to Pasha's house and around the side here all the windows have been replaced,
and you can see on the side of his fence here. What kind of —— is this? Because some of these are big holes there.
- You drop ——. - Okay. Drops then like, and it's like a tube you just drop ——, and it goes boom.
My dog —— here because some iron...
Pieces of iron from the —— wounded the dog, and the dog —— because of that. I'll show you my dog.
This is my dog, Varsity name, Newfoundland. Around 70 kilograms.
It was a big dog. - How old was he? - Seven years. - Seven. - Yes. He was a very beautiful and nice dog.
So sorry. This garage was made of wood I think so, then it went on fire,
and now they cleaned it up already and everything is clean, but the dog —— and all burned up, so I can't imagine.
And do you have any message that you want to say to the Russian —— or government?
People were —— without clothes, without pants, without anything,
naked, absolutely lying on the streets when it is -10ºC outside.
Women, for example, were naked and were ——.
There were some reports of dogs being butchered and eaten by Russian soldiers,
do you know of that to be true? Yeah, I even saw many photos that dogs were ——
and the arms, legs of the dogs were screwed with the screwdriver,
you know, to some wooden plank, so they could flash them and then eat,
I don't know for what did they do it, maybe they couldn't find anything to eat, and they eat dogs as well.
We've been invited into Pasha's house for some vodka.
This is pretty smooth. Now we will gonna drink for the lives of the defenders
that were given to protect not just Ukraine or European civilization,
but the whole word civilization. What an absolute honor to be invited into that family's house to, you know,
give their respects to those that have —— in the war, it's absolutely beautiful. Your mother, Pasha, just came straight out and gave us both a hug, you know.
- Yes. - Very nice. - Like a friend. - Yeah, exactly. To be in Bucha where all this stuff happened, and then to come into a house
and hear the stories and things, it's an honor, you know. Okay, Pasha, so we've come to your local supermarket here.
You were saying when the war, when there was fighting in the streets, they had closed the supermarket, but people were wanting food,
and you have a video to show where people actually broke into the supermarket, right? Yes.
So, the locals came and smashed down the windows, and they took food? Smash down windows, and one big —— coming here, and here was a big hole.
So, there's a —— up here, right? Yes, here was a big hole.
But you mentioned that another grandma of yours sadly —— of a heart attack during the war,
a second grandmother had a heart attack. Yes, heart attack because she was old, 80-years-old,
she was crying every day because she listened to attack and heart attack, it's very pain.
I really appreciate you showing around your city today. It's a beautiful city, you know, there's lots of lovely modern buildings,
and parks, and nice houses and things, so hopefully you build back. I think in a few years we'll build it again and be better than now.
- Okay. - Thank you, bro. Thank you very much, I appreciate it.
Okay, so back in Kyiv. A true honor to meet the array of people that we met of all backgrounds, really.
Like I've mentioned, I've been to Ukraine a handful of times and people have always been great to me and you know I love coming back here,
obviously, this time it's a different Ukraine, but the kindness of the people prevails. I must say I am doing a fundraiser, if you would like to donate
it helps people with basic necessities, whether it's food supplies., blankets, the money also goes to help victims on the front line,
whether that's with first aid and things, vital lifelines. If you'd like to donate, I'll leave the information below,
there's different price points there, makes a huge difference. If you can, if you have a bit of money, I've seen what you guys have been able to in the past,
if we can chip in and help the people of Ukraine at the moment, they surely need it, it would go a long way, you can see how grateful they are for the international help
multiple people have just brought it up on their own, I haven't brought it up, and they just said thank you to the international community for taking their side
and helping them during this monstrous, horrific time that they're facing. I'll leave that information down below,
you can read up more about the charity and the help that they provide, which is incredible. There's a good trust rating there and yeah, I'll end it on that,
In case I don't see you, good afternoon, good evening and good night.
