This radio recording of a conversation between Ukrainian soldiers on the so called Snake Island document the last words and thoughts the man had just before a naval bombardement on their position started. The Russian warship demanded their surrender to which they just replied with the words “Go f**k yourself!” At around 18:00, Ukrainian State Border Guards announced that Snake Island had come under attack from Russian ships, during the first day of the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine. At 22:00 (01:00 Moscow Time, UTC+2), the State Border Guard Service announced that Russian forces had captured the island following a naval and air bombardment that destroyed all infrastructure on the island. Thirteen Ukrainian border guards, representing the entirety of the Ukrainian military presence on the island, were killed during the battle after refusing to surrender. President Volodymyr Zelenskyy announced they will all be awarded the title of Hero of Ukraine.
