Russia is trying to surround the disastrous attempt to capture the Hostomel Airport near Kyiv in a veneer of soldierly valor and heroics. They paint a picture of "200 VDV Spartans" in an uphill battle against "Neonazis", holding their ground until finally giving their life "for the Motherland". The truth is that their deaths were silly and pointless, and fending them off at the airport were units of the Ukrainian National Guard and armed civilians. Watch Lesia Ivanova's video to see how Russians come up with the most nonsensical heroic narratives in the face of an absence of any significant military achievements, and why the Russian "society" needs it.
