A CNN reporter paused his live broadcast in Kyiv to put on protective gear as he heard explosions, shortly after Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a military operation in Ukraine.

Matthew Chance, the news network’s senior international correspondent, was reporting from the roof of a hotel in Kyiv when he heard loud explosions in the background.

“There are big explosions taking place in Kyiv right now,” he told the anchor in the CNN studio. “I can’t see where they are taking place from this vantage point here on top of the roof of the hotel in central Kyiv.”
