In order to impede the advance of Russian tanks from occupied Crimea, Ukrainian marine engineer Vitaliy Skakun gave up his life to blow up the Henichesky road bridge and delay the Russian offensive.

Russia’s Big War against Ukraine has entered its second day. The Armed Forces are engaged in full combat in the South, East and North, facing a powerful Russian army. One of the hottest combat zones is situated along the Crimean Isthmus.

“It was decided to blow up the bridge. Sadly, Vitaliy didn’t have time to leave the area before detonation. Vitaliy contacted his comrades-in-arms to say that he was ready to blow it up. They heard the explosion immediately. Sadly, Vitaliy was killed on the spot, but his heroic deed delayed the enemy’s advance… and allowed our units to redeploy and organize the defence,”-wrote the General Staff of the Armed Forces.

With a coldly determined look in their eyes, Vitaliy’s brothers-in-arms affirm that they will fight to the end.

“Russian occupiers! May you burn in hell! The earth will blaze and burn under your feet! We will fight to the very last breath! We will fight as long as we live!”
