Confusing Interaction with Russian POW Ends in Firefight

UPDATE: I've updated this archived footage with a translated version from Twitter. Which gives it more context. Specifically, it was found on @highwalker69's feed, but I can't be certain if they are the original translators. I also can't validate the translation. -Ronnie


ORIGINAL Article: Confusing video that lacks serious context is being shared around social media with zero translation right now. If ever there was a time for War Translated on Twitter to put out the Ukrainian words being spoken in a video, this is the one.


It's unclear what's happening in this video. I recognize the word "F@ggot" being used a lot by the Ukrainian Soldier who is holding the knife, and it appears as if he is sending the Russian Soldier out to other positions to get more Russians to surrender, but I can't be sure because I don't know what's being said.


If any of our users can provide a translation for this video, we'll update the blog post with a full translation. If Dmitri from War Translated gets a new copy of the video out, we'll embed his version here in the article as well.


The only additional context we have at this time is that the video was released by members of the 127th Brigade who are conducting combat operations near Bakhmut, but even that small amount of context is in question at the moment as well.
