This workout is dedicated to the 13 Ukranian soldiers who were killed defending a tiny island after reportedly swearing at a Russian ship that ordered them to surrender on February 25, 2022.
Ukraine says they were then killed by air and sea strikes. Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky has awarded each of the guards the posthumous title of “Hero of Ukraine”.
“On our Zmiinyi Island, defending it to the last, all the border guards died heroically,” – Mr Zelensky
In the audio recordings, shared by a Ukrainian government official, the soldiers can be heard exchanging barbed comments with the Russian vessel.
“This is a Russian warship,” one voice says in the clip. “I propose you lay down your weapons and surrender to avoid bloodshed and unnecessary victims. Otherwise you will be bombed.”
The Russian soldiers respond with a proper “Go F*ck Yourself!”
