A Ukrainian father broke down in tears as he said goodbye to his partner and young daughter as they allegedly boarded a bus for safety reasons as he stayed behind to fight, viral video shows heartbreaking.

The clip provides a horrific insight into how the conflict in Eastern Europe is tearing families apart.
