The video of an unnamed Ukrainian woman confronting Russian soldiers and handing them a bunch of sunflower seeds has gone viral on social media winning millions of hearts. Without getting intimidated by the heavily armed Russian soldiers, the woman said, “You should put sunflower seeds in your pockets so that they will grow on Ukrainian land after you die.” Hindustan Times did not independently verify the video.

“Who are you?”, the woman asked the soldiers to which a soldier said, “We have exercises here. Please go this way.” After the soldier confirmed that they are Russians, the woman said, “So, what the f*** are you doing here?”

“Right now, our discussion will lead to nothing,” the soldier replied.

“You are occupants, you are fascists! What the f*** are you doing on our land with all these guns? Take these seeds and put them in your pockets so at least sunflowers will grow when you all die down here,” the woman said.

The soldiers unrelenting, the woman too went on with her jibe and said, “. from this moment, you are cursed. I am telling you.”

As the soldier asked her to “not escalate the situation” and go the other way as he showed, the woman said, “How can it be further escalated? You f***ing came here uninvited. Pieces of s***.”

After Russian President Vladimir Putin authorised the operation on Ukraine, the ongoing crisis turned into a full-blown war with Russia invading Ukraine through land, air and seas. Within a day, Russia captured the Chernobyl plant and is now closing in on Kyiv. Russia said it is ready to send a delegation to the Belarusian capital Minsk for talks with Ukraine. Ukraine has said it is willing to discuss declaring itself a neutral county.

The woman also asked for the Russian soldiers to put sunflower seeds in their pockets so that if they died on Ukrainian soil flowers would grow in their place.

She also swore at the soldier as he attempted to de-esclate the situation, according to a transcript of the conversation. The transcript was posted by Mashable journalist Chris Taylor.

The woman began the confrontation by asking who the soldier was and he promptly told her to move along.

Undeterred, she asked if he was Russian, which he confirmed. She then sternly replied: “What the f*ck are you doing here?”

She added: “You’re occupants, you’re fascists! What the f*ck are you doing on our land with all these guns?,” according to the transcript.

“Take these seeds and put them in your pockets, so at least sunflowers [Ukrainian national flower] will grow when you all lie down here.”

The soldier replied: “Right now, our discussion will lead nowhere. Let’s not escalate this situation. Please.

The woman answered: “What situation? Guys, guys. Put the sunflower seeds in your pockets, please.

“You will lie down here with the seeds. You came to my land. Do you understand? You are occupiers. You are enemies.”

The soldier again attempted to de-escalate the situation, however the woman was determined to have the last word.

“And from this moment, you are cursed. I’m telling you,” she said.

After being told not to escalate the situation, the woman closed by replying: “How can it be further escalated?

“You f***ing came here uninvited. Pieces of sh*t.”

As the conflict between Ukraine and the Russian invaders continues, the Ukrainian leader called for international aid.

Throughout the conflict, Volodymyr Zelenskyy has been routinely tweeting on social media, both in English and Ukrainian.

We defend our freedom, our land. We need effective international assistance. Discussed this with @AndrzejDuda. Appealed to the Bucharest Nine for defense aid, sanctions, pressure on the aggressor. Together we have to put at the negotiating table. We need anti-war coalition.
