Ukrainians ‘given compostable body bags to bury Russian troops after combat’

Ukrainian soldiers have allegedly been given a new piece of equipment in their fight against the Russian invasion – but it's not a weapon.

Video footage emerged overnight of a Ukrainian soldier showcasing his new tool, which, he claims, is a biodegradable body bag.

And it is said that they are being given to Ukrainian soldiers to use because “Russia is not burying their dead”.

The video, which doesn't have an exact location, shows what looks like a black plastic bin bag with a clip art-style image of a soldier lying on the floor with a sunflower growing out of its stomach.

A translation of the voice in the video states: “Look, dudes. I have been fighting with f*****g Russians for eight years now.

“And I was given everything from a soviet metal helmet to NVGs.

“But this is the first time I see something like this.

"Look (it says) 'Sanitary package for occupiers' size 3XL.

“It's just f*****g unbelievable.

“As I understand it, the Russians are totally f****d by their government.

“Nobody is going to take away their bodies.

“Then we Ukrainians will make sure that they get home properly.

“Russian occupant is the best fertilizer, and it's hard to disagree with that.”

The video emerged on forum site Reddit overnight.

It divided opinions among the users.

One user, Corcyra wrote: “(Being buried in the bags) was once a young man, and probably a lot of care and love has gone into his short life by the parents who loved him and raised him.
