Randy Russian Soldiers Flirt With Ukrainian Girls Amidst Invasion
Ukrainian women in second city Kharkiv — just 20 miles from tyrannical Vladimir Putin’s vast invasion force — have been stunned by a salvo of admirers in uniform.
Hunky Russian troops called Andrei, Alexander, Gregory, Michail and a bearded Chechen fighter nicknamed “Black” were among dozens whose profiles popped up.
And they looked certain to get a rocket from Red Army commanders last night after giving away their position and posting pictures of their uniforms in flirty messages.
Dasha Synelnikova’s phone lit up with snaps of dozens of randy Russians when she set her location to Kharkiv on Tinder yesterday.
The soldiers are believed to have come into range after the Russian President’s commanders ordered a huge influx of tanks and troops within striking distance of the city.
Video producer Dasha, 33, told The Sun last night: “I actually live in Kyiv but changed my location settings to Kharkiv after a friend told me there were Russian troops all over Tinder.
“And I couldn’t believe my eyes when they popped up trying to look tough and cool.
“One muscular guy posed up trying to look sexy in bed posing with his pistol.
“Another was in full Russian combat gear and others just showed off in tight stripy vests.
“I didn’t find any of them attractive and would never consider sleeping with the enemy.
“I automatically swiped left to reject them, but there were so many I got curious and got into a message exchange.
“It was funny but scary at the same time, knowing that they were so close.”
Dasha swapped messages with 31-year-old Andrei — who posed clutching his Kalashnikov rifle in full combat gear and helmet.
This is how it went:
Dasha: “Where are you? Are you in Kharkiv?
Andrei: “Of course I am not in Kharkiv but I am close — 80km.”
Dasha: “Do you have any plans to visit us?”
Andrei: “I would come with pleasure but Russian guys have not been welcome in Ukraine since 2014 [when pro Russian forces seized Donbas and annexed Crimea].
Dasha: “What do you do?”
Andrei: “I was born in Belgorod and was an engineer before 2014 and visited Kharkiv quite a lot and loved it there so much I wanted to buy a flat. I love travel to Asia, particularly Thailand. But now it’s a difficult time. I wanted to travel to Europe but getting a visa is difficult because no one likes Russia right now.”
When Dasha asked outright whether Andrei was a Russian soldier, he replied with a cheeky “gif” video of Hollywood star Jim Carrey, as if to say: “Oops!”
In the space of one hour, Dasha’s Tinder trawl unearthed a steady stream of Russian admirers, all appearing to be among Putin’s force massing north of Kharkiv.
Ukrainian military intelligence said last night that the sheer volume of troops there pointed to an attack on the city in the coming hours.
Soldiers looking for love included bearded “Black” — a 33-year-old Chechen fighter who posted a snap of himself in bed clutching a pistol — and another cuddling a kitten.
Alexander, 29, posed in a beret with his sunglasses tucked in his tight blue and white striped vest.
Uniformed Gregory, 25, seemed keen to show off his military watch in another snap.
Another Russian was Alexander, 31 — a possible Russian spy. He revealed he was working in the “Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation.”
Dasha said: “These guys are just the same as anyone else on Tinder — they want love or companionship.
“So it’s kind of hard to imagine that they could be coming here to attack us. I hope it won’t happen.”
Russian units have been ordered to switch off mobile phones in preparation for an invasion, it has emerged.
Advanced units of the 1st and 2nd Army Corps are said to have received the order.
