(R)=Russian (separatist) soldier (W)=Woman
(W): Bad information is coming through, horror.
(W): That a lot of wounded, dead are being taken away, a lot of captives taken.
(R): Yes, we got into a bit of a scuffle yesterday. I thought I’d never hear you again.
(W): Dear, don’t risk it.
(R): How is it – don’t risk it, if there’s no one here, it’s f*cked. I can’t just take and run the f*ck away.
(W): F*ck, the fourth, it is… they published, I texted Vanya, it’s a mess.
(R): The fourth is a battalion, they took their kombat *battalion commander* prisoner, forced to stay with him so he wouldn’t run away. It’s because they have a f*ckload of 300s *wounded*.
(W): Well, they are refusing… to serve.
(W): There’s a video on telegram.
(R): With their appeal?
(R): We also yesterday… loaded the vehicles, were ready to get the f*ck out. An order came through to stay… anyway, f*cking c*nts.
(W): Can you not just send this commander *to hell*? Who’s sitting somewhere…
(R): He’s a Russian, he’s here at the front.
(R): Yesterday over 20 people 300s *wounded* Russians were moved away.
