"Putin's dream of creating a Greater Russia is my country's nightmare. #SaveUkraine," Klitschko captioned the video of himself walking through a destroyed street. The athlete proclaimed in the short video, "That's what Russian war against civilians looks like," while going on to describe the terrifying damage.
As OK! exclusively reported, the actress' 7-year-old daughter, Kaya, lives with her former fiancé in Ukraine. And while Panettiere has since confirmed she was not in Ukraine after Russia attacked, an insider spilled that the Nashville star felt "helpless" watching Russian troops invade the country.
“Hayden’s in contact with Kaya and knows she’s in good hands [with her dad],” the OK! source said following Panettiere's February 26 Instagram post, where she confirmed the youngster was "safe" and "not in Ukraine."
“She wishes she could be there to comfort her," the insider maintained.
While Kaya doesn't live with her mom, “Hayden truly thinks Wlad’s an amazing father,” added an insider close to the Hollywood star. “There will be a point where she will try to have more custody [of Kaya], but now’s not the time.”
After the former couple split in 2018 following their nine-year relationship, the two made the decision that Kaya would live with Klitschko in his home country.
“She and Wlad decided a long time ago that Kaya was better off with him," the insider said of the decision. However, the source added, “Hayden and Wlad speak every day," and that the formerly engaged couple “have done a good job coparenting.”
It is not clear where Panettiere and Klitschko's little girl is at the moment, given that her father shared a video with her no where in sight. Nevertheless, it's safe to assume her protective mom and dad have her somewhere safe during this uncertain time, as Kaya's well-being has been at the forefront of the actress' mind. “Her daughter’s safety and happiness is Hayden’s No. 1 priority — she means more to her than anything," the insider concluded.
