“I noticed small models of as much as 5 of our guys on foot who had been destroying large numbers or Russian autos – three tanks at one time,” he added, consuming a espresso on a cold morning in central Kharkiv.
Russian troopers and fighters from the separatist Donetsk and Luhansk areas had fled in a rout, he stated.
“They left an enormous quantity of autos and ammunition. We couldn’t switch or evacuate all of it to our rear.”
Few of the pro-Russian forces stayed to combat, with many switching into civilian garments to flee, Birdie added.
“There have been a whole lot of uniforms mendacity round. We caught a few of these guys making an attempt to flee in civilian garments, they had been telling some unbelievable bullshit making an attempt to save lots of themselves.”
Different Russian troops had been unable to tell apart their very own forces from advancing Ukrainian troops.
“I heard them asking what had been the white crosses on the autos. Then I heard them die in actual time, whereas I used to be listening,” he stated.
