A Ukrainian couple who were married on live television were forced to quickly flee to a bomb shelter when Vladimir Putin unleashed yet more terror missiles on kyiv on their wedding day.
Air defense fighter Oleksandr Tereshchenko, 34, married war paramedic Tetyana Snidanok yesterday on the 1+1 channel breakfast TV show.
The couple exchanged vows and sealed their marriage with a passionate kiss on camera before performing their first dance in front of the hosts and crew in the studio.
But just minutes later, the couple were forced to take cover along with several other residents when the all-too-familiar sound of airborne sirens restarted, signaling that Putin had ordered yet more barbaric attacks on the Ukrainian capital.
Despite Russia’s terrifying assault on their country, the newlyweds didn’t let it ruin their special day.

Moments after performing their first dance, they had to flee to a bomb shelter (pictured) after hearing raid sirens.
In fact, footage from inside the bomb shelter shows them laughing and smiling, while host Katya Nesterenko shared a video of them kissing around 11:30am as Kiev locals also took cover.
‘Kyiv air raid alarm. Wedding. Take cover,’ he said on Facebook. ‘Everything will be Ukraine!’
The New Voice of Ukraine reports that Oleksandr and Tetyana stayed in the bomb shelter until the air raid alert was turned off, while others hiding underground congratulated them on their nuptials.
The strikes on Monday followed a barrage of attacks on kyiv by Russia, which increased the frequency of its missiles in anticipation of a Ukrainian counteroffensive.
On Saturday night, kyiv came under the biggest drone strike since the start of Russia’s war.
At least one person was killed and several more were injured, local officials said.
Yesterday, terrified school children screamed in terror as they ran for their lives to the safety of nearby bomb shelters.
Ukraine’s First Lady Olena Zelenska shared images of children running through the streets of kyiv on Twitter, writing: ‘kyiv. Morning after sleepless night under fire. Anxiety again…

‘Children running and screaming for shelter to the sound of the explosions. But it shouldn’t be like that, anywhere. Fear cannot be turned off, but we don’t stop, we act. Ukraine is still fighting.’
Ukraine shot down 11 cruise and ballistic missiles fired in the second of Monday’s attacks on kyiv, said Valeriy Zaluzhnyi, commander-in-chief of the armed forces.
Heavy airstrikes some six hours earlier struck the capital, knocking out five Ukrainian planes in the west of the country and starting a fire in the Black Sea port of Odessa.
This morning, as kyiv defended itself, the Ukrainian army said: ‘In the last 24 hours, the enemy has already carried out three attacks.
‘In addition, the enemy constantly changes weapons for the attack, after the combination of missiles and drones, and then ballistics, the aggressor used exclusively UAVs.’

Moscow was attacked this morning by suspected Ukrainian kamikaze drones just hours after Putin unleashed attacks on kyiv.
Several buildings were damaged in Moscow’s wealthy suburbs, including the elite Rublyovka district, southwest of the capital.
Ukraine had no immediate comment on the attack, which would be one of the deepest and boldest on Russia since the Kremlin launched its full-scale invasion of Ukraine more than 15 months ago.
