Watch: Inside Zelensky’s Underground Bunker

Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky has unlocked the doors of his top-secret underground bunker as he shows the world inside his war rooms.

He has taken the step of revealing what goes on inside the Kyiv shelter where he has lived for the past year.

Opening the bunker up to mark the one-year anniversary of Russia’s invasion of his country, he showed Ukrainian journalist Dmytro Komarov inside.

Showing just how small the space is, the home where he makes critical decision and holds meetings was where was sitting in the early hours of February 24 last year when he was informed of the Russian invasion.

In the documentary called ‘Year’ reporter Mr Komarov shared footage from the president’s base littered with photos of his family.

There was also a bust of inspirational wartime leader Winston Churchill in an office decked out with Ukrainian flags.

President Zelensky shared details of that fateful day a year ago as the illegal war was launched by Vladimir Putin.

He told him: “It’s very difficult to remember all the details. I got a call that it all had started.

“We woke up with my wife, my family, my son, my daughter. I definitely thought about waking the kids up, packing up everyone.

“To tell the kids what is happening, that the war had started. They are adults, they must understand what’s happening.

“I left very fast. I love my family, but for me as president, being here was a priority.”

A government insider told The Times that staying in the bunker was a tough existence as “you don’t see the sun, you don’t know the time.”

During this time he did not see his wife, Olena, nor his two children.

Zelensky added that he hadn’t had the time to think over the impact of the war on his young family.

“We didn’t have time for such romance, because we’ve been kind of busy,” he said.

“The only thing I remember I was thinking about [after the invasion] was this office, the phones, the team I have to gather now.

“Everything had changed. Life had changed. And it was impossible to return to what was before,” he added.

    Screw that SOB! He’s putting US cash in freaking underground bunkers! This is the same man who ran around completely naked with several of his comrades on Ukraine TV. This man is nothing but a younger version of Joe Biden, Ukrainian style! Corrupt, immoral and self-serving.
