Fear and panic gripped Ukraine on Thursday as Russian forces invaded the country, after months of escalating tensions. Explosions began in several cities early morning and scared residents rushed to take shelter in basements and subway stations.

Their relatives living abroad are worried about their safety. One such foreign resident is Olga Kravchenko, the chief executive officer of an immersive app company named Museimo. She lives in the United Kingdom.

After Russia’s invasion of Europe, Kravchenko posted an emotional note on LinkedIn, in which she urged the world to support Ukrainians during the crisis.

“Today my country was invaded by Russia at 5 AM,” Kravchenko said. “Martial law has been introduced. Major cities are under missile attack. My family is in Kyiv, and they can't leave the country. The sky is closed. They hear explosions, and they hear sirens. They don't know what to do.”
