Ukrainian Border Guards Tell Russian Warship ‘Go F*** Yourself’ Before Getting Attacked (Updated)


UPDATE: On February 28, Ukrainian officials corrected initial reports and stated the border guards who rebuked the Russian warship are “alive and well” after being captured by the opposition following their attempt to defend the island. 

Thirteen Ukrainian border guards are being hailed as heroes after they defiantly resisted a Russian warship that threatened their outpost at Snake Island.

According to CNN, which obtained radio transmission of the event, a Russian military warship approached Snake Island and told the Ukrainian defenders to “lay down their weapons and surrender to avoid bloodshed and needless casualties.” The Ukrainian soldiers responded by saying, “Russian warship, go f*** yourself” before they were killed.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has confirmed the event and plans to honor the slain border guards with the “Hero of Ukraine” medal.
