Ukrainian soldiers receive gas burners and warm clothing over Christmas.

UKRAINIAN soldiers receive gas burners and warm clothing over Christmas from volunteers.

Ukrainian servicemen fighting on the eastern frontline were happy to receive gas burners, warm clothing, and sweets on Saturday (December 10), brought to them by Oleksii, a volunteer.

“First of all, gas burners and gas tanks that they needed direly. Socks, winter gloves and something sweet to bolster the morale, so to say,” said Oleksii, unloading the van.

‘Gas tanks, burners – this is golden!’ said the serviceman receiving boxes.

Despite having no problems with food, there is always some room for sweets in Ukrainian soldiers’ backpacks and pockets.

“When you’re on positions for a long time and eat canned meat and macaroni, the sweets help for sure,” Said Stanislav, surrounded by boxes of warm clothes, food and various equipment in their base in Kramatorsk.
