Odessa is bracing for a Russian attack as residents remained determined to defend their country.

Russian forces have continued to attack Ukrainian cities seeing thousands of civilians running for bomb shelters.

One Ukrainian likened the current war to Israel’s Yom Kippur War when Egypt and Syria launched a surprise attack on Israeli positions along the Suez Canal and Golan Heights in 1973.

The strategic city of Odessa is bracing itself for Russian attacks and the city’s residents are demonstrating fierce determination to defend their country.
