He and his comrades fired at Russian positions located about 500-600 meters from the trench, using various weapons, such as automatic pistols or grenade launchers.
“Here, against us, there are high-caliber machine guns, anti-tank rifles, but they have very bad snipers… The positions are well made and fortified.
We can hold out here, and we will,” said Volodymyr, also 26, who came from Germany to defend his country.
