Russian invasion of Ukraine 6857
The Ministry of Defense in Kyiv today published a video shot near the village of Pravdina, in the Black Sea region of Kherson. The footage shows around ten soldiers waving a white flag.
At the same time, Ukrainian soldiers watching the scene begin to argue. One of them expressed his opinion that it was a military ruse. “Everything can be expected from them (the Russians). Andryukha (diminutive of Andrey), shoot them an invigorating and encouraging projectile. I’m serious,” says one of them.
Another officer of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) replied that the occupiers were indeed surrendering. “The equipment is being withdrawn,” he adds, and the commander cancels his order.
The Russian propaganda machine also released the footage. Moscow said it was Ukrainian military personnel.
To recall, the Ukrainian Armed Forces launched a large-scale counter-offensive against the occupiers in the southern part of the country on August 29.
