(MEXICO – CNN).- Alex Tienda shared on his Instagram account the moment in which the attacks on the city of Kramatorsk, in Ukraine, began in the middle of the night, hours before he had been interviewed by the CNN news network about the announcement of the Russian military operation.

Through clips published on his Instagram stories , at 5 in the morning Ukraine local time, he shows the window of the hotel where he was staying and assured that he had just heard several explosions.

“My friends, they are already attacking Ukraine, they just attacked the city where I am, I can hear the bombing,” said the youtuber while recording outside his room.

Hours earlier, the youtuber said in an interview for CNN that, despite the imminent threat of a military invasion, normality still prevailed in the city of Kramatorsk.

“The stores are working normally, restaurants, people go out to eat (…) it seems like any peaceful city,” said the young man, although he warned that many of the people with whom he has spoken are afraid, they are pro-Ukraine and they do not want to belong to Russian Federation.
