If you want to see what war is like, look at the things currently being posted to CombatFootage. Be warned. Be careful. It is ugly.
Civilian 1: …You’re back, I’ve come over. (The civilian asked the soldier something, it is not clear).
Russian Soldier 1: No.
Woman: Oh god.
Russian Soldier 1: We are holding position.
Civilian 1: How many people were there?
Russian soldier 1: There is one Company (military unit). Only four Company (military unit). We have more positions there (Shows with his hand) There, there, there.
Civilian 1: Is there anything along the Keremey village? Keremey, there is a brick factory.
Russian Soldier 1: I don’t know, there aren’t any of us there.
Civilian 1: So guys, I’m seriously telling you: If you are attacked and you will not cope with the attack, drop your weapons on the spot, take off your protection, helmets and surrender with your hands up. I have a loaded rifle, if someone resists, I don’t care (fuck) I’m responsible for my words.
Russian soldier 1: Clearly (nods).
Civilian 1: You surrender, I’m locking you up in a warehouse. Ukrainian troops arrive and we hand you over to them. If you want to live. If not, it’s your choice. I will shoot you from here. All clear?
Russian Soldier 1: Yes. (nods).
Civilian 1: Agreed.
Russian soldier: As I understand it, if our guys come, we will go out to them.
Civilian 1: Everything. We will not touch anyone, I do not need it. Do you think I enjoy running to the basement every five minutes? And wait until the bomb arrives? Are you on the defensive? Good! But if you shoot, I will protect my family.
Russian Soldier 1: Okay, okay.
Civilian 1: I won’t attack your armored vehicle with a pitchfork.
Civil 2: We are all human and you understand that we also have relatives in Russia.
Russian soldier 1: I also have relatives in Ukraine.
Civilian 2: We are shocked (fucked) by what is happening. You are on military equipment and spoil the psyche of our children. Children are afraid.
Russian Soldier 1: I understand.
Civilian 1: I won’t attack your armored vehicle with a pitchfork. If you attack…
Civilian 2: We’re watching everything that’s going on and we’ll be in the yard. If there is horror (fuck), we told you what to do to save your lives. We offer you surrender. We will not torture or kill you. Nobody will kill you in the yard. I want everything to be like before. We lived well, you lived well, it was calm.
(The soldier turned to his comrades)
Russian Soldier 2: We’re leaving.
