A Ukranian sniper popularly referred to as Ukraine’s ‘Joan of Arc’ got married to her military husband on the frontlines while wielding a deadly machine gun.
The rather famous sniper, Evgenia Emerald, aged 31, shared her “perfect wedding” with netizens as she stated that”a new patriotic family was born“.
Her wedding was on a public holiday known as Defender’s Day over the weekend and it’s a special day in Ukraine to honour Ukrainian military veterans.
Evgenia and her husband tied the knots on the front line in the Kharkiv region, which has sustained heavy shelling since the Russian onslaught began in February.
The couple first met shortly after Putin launched his full scale invasion, with Evgenia announcing the military couple’s engagement just a few months later in August.
Writing on Instagram, she said,
“Today I became officially the wife of the military.
“It happened on the frontline… I couldn’t imagine a more perfect wedding!
“We understand that every day could be the last one and we don’t want to postpone life for later.
“It’s a special day – too many holidays. I want to congratulate all defenders. Glory to heroes!
“I also celebrate my lover because today is his birthday. Now he will definitely never forget his wedding anniversary.”
