Scout of Ukrainian army raises blue and yellow banner near Maryinka, one of hottest flashpoints in combat area
According to the Chief Department of Intelligence of Ukraine’s Defense Ministry, a Ukrainian scout raised the national flag over the enemy’s positions near Maryinka, Donetsk region.
The inhabited area remains the hottest spot in the entire combat area, the authority reported.
‘The Ukrainian flag flows over the stud farm in the vicinities of Maryinka. There are firing positions of pro-Russian militants along the buildings there,’ the Chief Department of Intelligence reported, adding that the enemy doesn’t want to take a risk to take the flag away.
‘Since I raised the flag, they’ve been shooting at each other, at their own positions. They throw grenades into each other’s’ trenches. They think some of us reached their positions’, said the scout who raised the flag.
