The partisans infiltrating behind enemy lines intimidate the attacking soldiers: “The safari has begun”, says the head of Ukrainian intelligence
On 18 March, between the cities of Poltava and Kharkov, a column of 10 Russian tanks with their crews withdrew from the front to reconnect to the Moscow-occupied area and to repair damage. In the middle of a one-lane road with trees on both sides, They came under a hail of anti-tank fire, which blew their armor and sent the survivors fleeing Cross country minutes later, a group of Ukrainians over the age of 50, many wearing uniforms with civilian clothes and some with hunting weapons, selfies Triumphant with the burning junk in the background.

These attacks have little military significance, But the level of morale is too high if the occupying army starts to feel really upset., Infiltration into enemy territory has been carried out not only by civilian partisans, but also by Ukrainian elite troops. Equipped with US-supplied night vision goggles, they attacked several camps on the outskirts of Kyiv during the early stages of the war, Which demolishes low Russian morale.

Its flag is red and black, which are the colors resulting from putting a Ukrainian flag (blue and yellow) in a bath of blood. Today, Ukrainian partisan units Have retrieved the emblem and proudly display it at each checkpoint,
