Ukrainian soldiers stomp Russian flags in the dirt in the liberated village: video

A video that went viral on Friday shows Ukrainian soldiers stamping Russian flags in the ground after liberating the village of Makiivka in the Luhansk region.

This was announced by the Kyiv Post video and tweeted that Makiivka and Herkivka were liberated by the Russian army this week, citing officials and preliminary reports.

The video, which was also posted by NEXTA TV in Belarus and has been viewed nearly 50,000 times, shows two Ukrainian soldiers smiling for the camera as they stand and lightly stomp the flags. Another soldier, apparently carrying a camera, also stamped the flags in the dirt while filming comrades.

Both villages are located east of the Oskil River between Borova in Kharkiv region, Lyman in Donetsk and Svatove in Luhansk, according to Euromaidan Press, which also shared the video of the Ukrainian soldiers.

According to Euromaidan Press, the recapture of both villages by Russian troops indicates that Ukrainian soldiers are continuing to move south of Svatove, a key district center in the Luhansk region.

According to military blog MilitaryLand.net, Ukrainian forces are advancing through the south of the country on their way to Nova Kakhovka. Additionally, Ukraine’s advances near a key area that supplies water to Crimea have posed a threat to Moscow’s control of the peninsula annexed in 2014.

New Voice of Ukraine journalist Euan MacDonald wrote this week that Nova Kakhovka is “a key target as it sits at the head of the canal that supplies much of the water to Ukraine’s Russian-occupied Crimea.”

Late last month, Ukrainian forces liberated the village of Kupyansk-Vuzlovy and raised its flag in recognition of its success in the eastern counteroffensive.

“The village of Kupyansk-Vuzlovy in the Kharkiv region is liberated,” Ukraine’s Defense Ministry tweeted. “One of the largest train stations in eastern Ukraine is located there. The occupiers used it for their supply route. The offensive in the Kharkiv region continues.”

As of September 25, only 6 percent of the Kharkiv region was reportedly still under Russian control, with Kyrylo Tymoshenko, deputy head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, saying a total of 454 settlements in Kharkiv had been liberated.

Yet, despite the recent successes of Ukrainian counter-offensives, and even after Russian President Vladimir Putin’s announcement of a “partial mobilization” of armed forces, Russia appears steadfast in pursuing its war. Some experts believe that Putin intends to make the war in Ukraine as long and destructive as possible.

“Putin shows no signs of reducing his goals, and the people around him are either completely inflexible or lack the power to change anything,” said Dmitry Gorenburg of the Center for Naval Analysis news week. “As long as Putin is in charge, I don’t think he will end this, no matter how costly it is for Russia itself.”

news week has asked the Russian Foreign Ministry for an opinion.
