Snow covers Kyiv's city center in December.

Reuters is reporting that 100,000 Ukrainians have fled their homes after Russia's invasion started on Wednesday night.

While some are leaving the country, most of them are staying and trying to find any safe space away from the fighting.

That’s exactly what happened to Eugene. He’s 30-years-old, works for an app company, and had to flee his home in Kyiv Wednesday night.

Idaho Matters senior producer Samantha Wright got the chance to talk to Eugene Thursday night about what he’s seeing in Ukraine.

My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
