13 Ukrainian Border Guards Killed In Heroic Last Stand After Telling Russian Warship ‘Go F*** Yourself’

A defiant group of 13 Ukrainian border guards defending Snake Island in the Black Sea reportedly told a Russian warship to “go f*** yourself” after being ordered to surrender.

Multiple outlets reported that the guards were approached by the warship as they defended the island located in the Black Sea.

“This is a Russian warship, I repeat. I suggest you surrender your weapons and capitulate otherwise I will open fire. Do you copy?” the Russians warned.

“This is it,” one of the guards can be heard saying in the audio clip below which has been translated. “Should I tell him to go f*** himself?”

“Just in case,” another replies.

The first guard seems to agree, turning up the volume on his broadcast radio before declaring: “Russian warship, go f*** yourself.”

Translations seem to vary, with the BBC reporting that the Ukrainians replied, “Go to hell.”

13 Ukrainian Border Guard in Heroic Last Stand

The 13 Ukrainian border guards were reportedly killed as the Russian warship opened fire with barreled guns and aircraft bombed Snake Island.

Ian Bremmer, president of the Eurasia Group, tweeted audio of the pre-attack dialogue.

“13 Ukrainians gave their lives to a criminal act by Vladimir Putin,” he wrote.

Another video on social media purports to show one of the 13 Ukrainian guards live-streaming the scene seconds before the Russian warship opens fire.

He yells out and falls to the ground as gunfire can be heard in the video. Ukrainian officials indicate all of the guards were killed in the attack.

Ukraine President Calls Them Heroes

Fox News commentator Geraldo Rivera on “Fox & Friends” this morning said the defiance of the 13 Ukrainian border guards was the equivalent of the 1836 Battle of the Alamo.

“There is no doubt, but this could go into the building of the national legend. This could be Ukraine’s Alamo. This could be Leonidas and Sparta standing against Xerxes,” Rivera said.

Texas Republican Representative Dan Crenshaw said the audio of the 13 Ukrainian soldiers standing strong against Russia no matter their fate is the “kind of thing that gives you goosebumps.”

“This is the kind of thing they will make movies of, they will write books on, and they will make statues of these men,” said Crenshaw.

Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky celebrated the men as heroes.

“On our Zmiinyi Island, defending it to the last, all the border guards died heroically,” he said. “But [they] did not give up.”

“May the memory of those who gave their lives for Ukraine live forever,” added Zelensky.

The Ukraine President said he would bestow the 13 Ukrainian border guards with the title “Hero of Ukraine,” reportedly the highest honor that can be awarded.
