As Russia's invasion of Ukraine enters the 19th day on Monday, India Today takes a look inside the metro station which has effectively become a bomb shelter for hundreds of Ukrainians.

Metro stations in Kyiv have been dubbed to be safe amidst the raging war. People who do not have bomb shelters in their neighbourhood have taken solace here.

Since it is not possible to go out to buy groceries or any food items, the food is brought for the people inside the metro station, twice a day.

One of the Ukrainian citizens holed up in the bomb shelter spoke to India Today. WATCH:

She explained that she and her family moved in here on the third day of the war. She said that she and her family have been staying here ever since.

They need to keep a place to stay, especially during the night, so she and her sister take turns sitting on the spot.

She said that the air is filled with sirens in the morning and the movement outside the bomb shelter is limited.

The people here are in shock and disbelief over Russia's invasion and just want the war to be over.
