Ukrainian partisans in Russian-occupied Mariupol in Donetsk Oblast have posted a mocking message and a video of a burning building said to have been used as quarters for officers from Russia’s invasion force in the city.
“It’s been a while since we played with the matches... Burns great! (This is) the house of invading officers. Or what’s left of it. Were you relaxing? Goodbye uniforms, personal effects, your loot and your peace of mind. Russians – we’re here!”
Mariupol Resistance, a group of partisans, posted the message and video on the Telegram messenger on Oct. 7.
The partisans also said it was a greeting to Russian dictator Vladimir Putin from Ukraine’s Mariupol.
Petro Andryushchenko, adviser to the mayor of Mariupol, commented on the video posted by the resistance movement in the city, saying it was "a nice birthday greeting to the most disgusting dictator of the 21st century."
Activists of the resistance movement in Mariupol are creatively protesting against the Russian occupation by painting the Ukrainian letter Ї in various parts of the city – the Russian alphabet has so such letter.
On Sept. 5, the Mariupol resistance movement called on Ukrainians in the city from their Telegram post to join this protest and paint the Ukrainian letter Ї, which they chose as their symbol, in various locations.
One of the first places where the "letter of resistance" appeared was the city center: on a paving stone near a monument to Ukrainian national poet Taras Shevchenko.
