The 13 Ukrainian boundary watches who were reportedly slaughtered while safeguarding a little Snake island after telling a Russian warship to “Go f-k yourself” may, in any case, be alive, authorities said.
“We [have a] compelling conviction that all Ukrainian protectors of Zmiinyi (Snake) Island might be alive,” the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine (SBGSU) said in a proclamation Saturday.
“Fundamental data that boundary watchmen might be dead preceded the protectors lost contact.”
The account of the courageous fighters insubordinately declining to give up their post on Snake Island stood out as truly newsworthy across the globe after Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky and the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine had both affirmed that they were cleared out two days prior.
Presently there is trust that they are as yet alive.
As indicated by the line organization, Russian media announced that the troopers had been caught after they set out their arms and were shipped to Sevastopol on the Russian-controlled Crimea Peninsula. SBGSU noticed that this data has not been affirmed.
As per CNN, Russian Maj.- Gen. Igor Konashenkov asserted 82 Ukrainian servicemen “set out their arms and deliberately gave up to a unit of the Russian Armed Forces,” in an explanation on Friday.
“After getting data about their conceivable area, the DPSU along with the Armed Forces of Ukraine are leading work on recognizing our warriors,” authorities said.
“We truly trust that the young men will get back quickly,” they added.
Two Russian boats moved toward the Ukrainian island on Thursday, hours after Russia sent off its full-scale intrusion into Ukraine.
