Shelter During an Air Alarm

People are hiding in the Lviv dungeon shelter during an air alarm. Those who choose to stay in the city are forced to hide in basements and city subways that serve as bomb shelters. Those who do not have a safe shelter, spend several days in the bathroom or hallway following the principle of two walls. Little Ukrainian children are born in such shelters.
