Many Kyiv residents have fled their homes as the Russian army appears to be closing in on the Ukrainian capital, APA reports citing CNN.

Maryna, who lives in the city, has been sheltering in a subway station since Thursday.

"There are a lot of families with kids and animals here. We are not that far from [the district of] Obolon, where sabotage and reconnaissance forces recently landed. That's why I'm here," she told CNN in a message.

Maryna -- who brought her cat Hermes to the shelter with her -- marveled at how calm everyone there was. She said there was enough food and water for everyone and people were in good spirits.

"Children are playing ball, someone is sleeping, someone is reading the news. No panic. I rarely see such kind-hearted people that Ukrainians turn into in the face of danger," she said.
