Ukraine citizen Shlomo Rosilio woke up to the sound of bombs Thursday as Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered his military forces into the former Soviet Union republic.

“This morning started hectic. You wake up. You hear the bombs. You don’t know what’s going on. You have no clue. It’s starting. … You hear the bombs all over you and you have no clue what to do,” Rosilio told the hosts of Fox News’ “Fox & Friends,” Thursday adding that “everyone panicked” when Russian forces began their assault. He has since been helping facilitate evacuations after getting his family out of danger.

Russian forces have invaded by land, sea and air, making it the largest such operation from a single nation-state against another in Europe since the Second World War.

Ukraine Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said the country has severed all diplomatic relations with Russia and called “on all our partners to do the same. By this concrete step you will demonstrate that you stand by Ukraine and categorically reject the most blatant act of aggression in Europe since WWII.”

Civilians reportedly piled into trains and cars as strikes on cities and military bases commenced. Ukraine’s government said Russian forces have rolled across the border in a “full-scale war” that could have far-reaching geopolitical consequences.

Rosilio said Ukrainian soldiers man the streets in preparation to fight as President Volodymyr Zelenskyy declared martial law and called upon Ukrainian citizens to take up arms in defense of the country, BPR reported Thursday. Thus far, the attacks have centered mostly on military targets with Russia claiming they destroyed all of Ukraine’s air defenses in a matter of hours.

“If we’ll be attacked by the [enemy] troops, if they try to take our country away from us, our freedom, our lives, the lives of our children, we will defend ourselves. Not attack, but defend ourselves. And when you will be attacking us, you will see our faces, not our backs, but our faces,” Zelenskyy boldly proclaimed.

“We will give weapons to anyone who wants to defend the country. Be ready to support Ukraine in the squares of our cities,” he said in an address to the nation.

After Zelenskyy’s call to arms, Ukrainians have cleared out gun shops in Kyiv, though Rosilio told the Fox News hosts that he and others are unsure of what to do or where to acquire a weapon.

Nobody is stepping in to stop this madness,” Rosilio continued.

He said the country of Ukraine has been peaceful for many years and residents “don’t know what to do” following the invasion. He hopes that “God willing,” the violence will subside in the next few days, but he predicted Russian forces will take control of the capital city of Kyiv in short order.
