Russian invaders from the 26th regiment of the second battalion of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation in m/u 12267 recorded a complaining video message to Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu from the village of Krynki, Kherson region, which is located on the left bank of the Dnipro, reports dialog.ua.
According to them, the military command has been keeping them in the village of Krynki for four months already, while most of their fellow servicemen are already turned into "two hundred", whereas they are sent to islands located between the left and right banks of the Dnipro.
"Our commander Aleksandr Zolotko with the call sign "Zmey" blows off at us, he forced our commander to take us to the islands, to set up posts there.... He reported that everything was fine here and everyone was safe, but in the end we were left with 50 people from 3 companies (that's about 4 squads, i.e. about 1 platoon - ed.). He wants to take us there, so that we are killed, to cover our tracks and to make everything look good," Russian servicemen who were sent "to the slaughter" claim.
In addition, it became known that the Russian Armed Forces soldiers who recorded the video had already been sent to the "islands" where they were so reluctant to go.
