Kocaeli Metropolitan Municipality, which was transported by mobile aid vehicle while sending AFAD, was dispatched. The scene from the region made everyone cry. While Russia’s operations on Ukrainian territory continue uninterrupted, the evacuation of civilians continues. An AFAD mobile aid truck was sent by Kocaeli Metropolitan Municipality for those staying in the region. Civilian victims of war who reached the region began to eat hot food.


In the face of Turkey’s help, Ukrainian citizens clung to Turkish flags, showing great loyalty. In those moments, tears flooded. Faik Akyüz, who shot the video, could not hold back his tears. Akyüz, who broadcasts both live and conveys the developments in the region, said, “I am crying with my pride. Is there anyone here who sends help other than Turks? There is nobody. There are only Turks. We have a hospital. I’m proud. These are the aids of the largest country in the world. No other country is helping. Currently, people are not helped for money. There is no flag other than the Turkish flag here, it is not waving. People are smiling. What a great country we are people of,” he said.
