On 25th February, Ukraine’s president Zelenskyy has honoured 13 soldiers defending Snake Island after reportedly swearing at a Russian warship that ordered them to surrender.
Against first reports, the soldiers, thankfully, may still be alive. Their quote "Russian warship, go fuck yourself", captured on audio clips, stays the signature quote that captures the sentiment of the Ukrainian people defending themselves against Putin’s invasion.
Since the beginning of Putin’s unlawful war, over 150,000 Ukrainians – mostly women and children – seek refuge in Poland and other neighbouring countries.
