'Forgive us!' Putin shamed as Russian soldiers write prayers in Ukraine

News'Forgive us!' Putin shamed as Russian soldiers write prayers in Ukraine

A photo shared on social media shows a statue of the Virgin Mary where Russian soldiers reportedly stood to beg for forgiveness for the atrocities committed during the war. The statue appears to be built outside the Church of the Intercession of the Holy Mother of God, in Gostomel, near Kyiv. On the base of the statue, a message is written in pink paint.

The message translates to “Mommy of God, forgive us your sons”.

The photo was shared on Twitter by Illia Ponomarenko, defence reporter with The Kyiv Independent.

Posting the picture, Illia wrote: “Hostomel.

“This was probably written by Russians (please correct me if I’m wrong), a Mary monument in front of a local church.

“‘Mommy of God, forgive us your sons.’”

And the reporter continued by commenting: “Yes, you kinda have a lot to answer for in his battered town.”

With the war is in its second month, the morale of the Russian army seems to have crashed.

Exhausted soldiers are being pressed into a new Kremlin offensive.

A Russian army officer admitted he has been forced to shoot at his troops to force them to fight.
