image for Ukraine gives medal to soldier who told Russian officer to ‘go fuck yourself’

A Ukrainian soldier who told an officer on a Russian warship to “go fuck yourself” at the start of the invasion has been released as part of a prisoner exchange and awarded a medal for his services, the Ukrainian ministry of defence said on Tuesday.

When the detachment was asked to lay down their weapons, Hrybov responded by radio with a defiant: “Russian warship, go fuck yourself.”.

Initial reports said 13 border guards on the island had died after refusing to surrender, with President Volodymyr Zelenskiy of Ukraine saying each guard would be posthumously awarded the title Hero of Ukraine.

But just days later, Ukraine’s state border guard said that the soldiers were still alive and had been taken captive by Russia.

On Sunday, Zekenskiy said in an interview with Russian journalists that “some of the soldiers died, some were taken prisoner”.

#Ukraine Roman Hrybov, the Ukrainian soldier, who said the now-famous "Russian warship, go fuck yourself" phrase when asked to surrender, returned home.

However, the Snake Island incident also has been cited as a case study of how unverified information had the potential of spreading during the war. »
