Mayor of Ukrainian town scrambles to bomb shelter as air raid sirens sound mid-interview

1 min read

On Wednesday afternoon, Global News was on a Zoom call with Oleksandr Tretyak, mayor of the northwestern city of Rivne in Ukraine, when air raid sirens began blaring.

“I have to escape to a bomb shelter,” Tretyak suddenly said mid-interview from Rivne, a city of 300,000 that’s about four hours west of Kyiv and close to the border with Belarus.

After quickly leaving his office, with laptop in hand, Tretyak continued the Zoom call from a bomb shelter, something he and residents are getting all too familiar with.

The call was about discussing the idea of Kelowna and Rivne becoming sister cities.
