The US Embassy Kyiv shared the footage along with the caption: “Today, we salute this elderly couple who stood up against three Russian soldiers.”

The tweet has received more than 7,500 likes since it was shared, along with more than 1,430 retweets.

This came as Ukraine accused Russian forces of kidnapping Melitopol mayor Ivan Federov as they entered a “new phase of terrorism”.

The soldiers were armed, but the brave couple confronted them.



President Zelensky warned that Putin has moved to the next stage of his attack by kidnapping the mayor of the southeastern city of the country.

The adviser to the Ukrainian Interior Ministry, Anton Heraschenko, announced that 10 soldiers surrounded the Melitopol crisis center on Thursday, March 10, before wrapping a bag over Mr. Federov’s head.

Ukrainian officials have now shared CCTV footage that they claim shows the moment their colleague was kidnapped by Putin’s men.

The clip follows the moment a group of masked men lead another man from the building. But Moscow has not yet commented on the kidnapping claims.

In a speech on Friday, March 11, Ukrainian President Zelensky described his colleague as “a brave mayor who defends Ukraine and members of his community”.

It comes as the sounds of war continue to tear through Ukraine into the night with Russian troops moving closer to the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv.
