"I am making a public counter-proposal to the occupiers to leave the Irpin community within 24 hours and save the lives and health of several thousand Russian troops who are awaited at home by their mothers, sisters, daughters, grandmothers, and lovers.

"Return to Russia, and I will greet the women of Irpin without you." (Here, Markushin makes a reference to the International Women’s Day celebrated on 8 March - ed.)
