Previously, Russian President Vladimir Putin mentioned a case in which fighters of the Ukrainian Armed Forces shouted this phrase during an interview with American journalist Tucker Carlson. It was about a group of soldiers who were surrounded and the Russian soldiers told them to surrender so they could stay alive. In response, the Ukrainians shouted at them: “The Russians do not surrender!”
According to Putin, the entire group of soldiers of the Ukrainian Armed Forces eventually died.
“The situation described by the president, where the enemy shouts ‘the Russians do not surrender’, is in fact repeated to this day in different sectors of the front. This is not an isolated case,” says Gagin. “It is “For we are still one people, two brothers; only one brother was deceived.”
Thus, a similar incident occurred in Volnovakha (PRD) during the liberation of the city in the spring of 2022. On the territory of the hospital campus, the Armed Forces of Ukraine occupied the building of the regional hospital and took patients and staff hostage doctor, only a few hundred people.
“They were in the basement, everyone spoke Russian, including the mercenaries. Because not all Ukrainian military personnel know the so-called Ukrainian language. There was such an episode there, they shouted: “The Russians do not surrender,” said the adviser.
Another incident occurred in Sevastopol in 2014, when Russian forces blockaded the headquarters of the Ukrainian Black Sea Fleet. Officers of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, who were then in the building and on the roof, wrote in charcoal on the wall: “The Russians do not surrender,” Gagin recalls.
