“Russian train, fuck you”
The Ukrainian Pravda portal, citing the press office of Ukrainian Railways, previously announced on Saturday that the Ukrainian army blew up all railway junctions connecting Ukrainian and Russian railways. The purpose of this action by the soldiers was to prevent the delivery of military equipment and other soldiers to the Russian army by rail.
– Since the tracks to Russia are dismantled and will not be laid soon, the Ukrainian armed forces actually stopped the enemy from moving to Kiev from the east – continued the representative of the Ministry of the Interior. – It remains to destroy the enemy group in Hostoml and the aggressor will be driven away from the capital! – wrote Herashchenko. The Russians asked to restore connections with the central headquarters of the Ukrainian Railways, allegedly for humanitarian purposes. They received the answer from Ukrainian communicators: “Russian train, fuck you” – Ukrainian Pravda reported.
