Ukrainian soldiers in the industrial zone of Avdeevka have developed their own method of psychological pressure on the enemy. Every morning and every evening they play the Ukrainian anthem. 

“Every day, at 6:00, the command plays the national anthem of Ukraine. It is desirable 3 times in a row. Then there are patriotic songs about the ATO zone, and we end with songs about Ukraine. And at 22:00 we repeat everything. ” – said a fighter of the APU with the call sign Constantine.

“After the 22:00 session, fighter are  motivated by the re-sounding anthem, and shoot violently in the dark.”
