I visited Bakhmutka today, which is practically a front line. I visited our outmost positions – 25th, 29th, and 31st checkpoints, as well as the village of Krymske.
I disguised myself as Santa Claus and greeted our servicemen with the New Year. I wished them, just like I wished all of us, victory and their speedy return home to their family and loved ones. At the 31st checkpoint, one of the soldiers asked to swap our hats. [I] did it with pleasure. Let this hat bring a little holiday spirit to all those who will spend their New Year’s Eve not at the family table, but on the frontline – so that all of us can feel safe.
Today it’s cold in Luhansk region – the temperature was about –15 dC [5 dF], and we are expecting it to drop to –25 dC [-13 dF]. But despite the bitter cold and difficult firing conditions, the morale of our guys is very high; they are ready to defend their homeland to the end. No enemy will bring out fear with these warriors. Guys, I am proud of you and consider it a great honor to be able to bring you gifts today! And one more thing – I know we will prevail! Happy New Year!
