RTÉ’s Tony Connelly will share his first-hand experience of the war in Ukraine on The Late Late Show this Friday, while former Presidents of Ireland Mary Robinson and Mary McAleese will also speak together about the crisis.

RTÉ Europe Editor Connelly was reporting from the ground in Ukraine when the Russian invasion began in February.

As Russian air strikes began on the capital Kyiv, he and his RTÉ team were moved to a basement for safety before later leaving the country.

“Connelly saw first-hand how a vibrant city overnight turned to one where terror, confusion and panic reigned,” the Late Late Show said.

He is set to discuss the scenes he saw first-hand on the streets of Kyiv, while broadcasting from a bunker where parents and children sought refuge.

There will also be music from Dublin pop artist Aimée, who will perform her newest single 'Nobody Else'.

The Late Late Show airs this Friday on RTÉ One at 9.35pm.
