Reporter Alexander Safiulin spoke with the Russian military stationed in the Donbass, which borders Ukraine.
As a fighter with the call sign Yeti told the journalist, the Russians captured a group of Ukrainian soldiers in Maryinka.
Roughly 15 men participated in the battle. It was definitely a tiring experience, but the soldier described it as fun and hard.
His colleague with a call sign of “Neighbor” stated that the fighters of the Armed Forces of Ukraine did not make contact.
One fighter shared the memories of his last fight. “They persuaded him,” he shared, “but they did not understand that they had no chance at all, and this is the only way to stay alive.”
