“My heart hurts for the people of the Ukraine. I just..can’t fathom where this will lead. Sending prayers and so much love which is not enough,” Lauren Jauregui tweeted.

Yungblud shared a similar sentiment via Twitter, writing, “Im so devastated to see what’s happening in the Ukraine right now. my prayers are with you.”

The attacks on major cities in Ukraine comes after Russian President Vladimir Putin said that there would be a “special military operation,” which has turned into an all-out assault. Putin also strongly warned other countries against daring to intervene with his plans.

“To anyone who would consider interfering from outside: If you do, you will face consequences greater than any you have faced in history,” Putin said. “All the relevant decisions have been taken. I hope you hear me.”

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said his country is currently under attack “from the south, north, east and from the air.” Kyiv has said dozens of residents as well as soldiers in the country’s capital have already been killed while trying to defend and protect against Russia’s offensive military forces, according to NBC News.
