The Ukrainians themselves drew attention to one of the awarded representatives of the best tank platoon (the first photo in the material). This is a sergeant with a tattoo on his neck. Several comments from Ukrainian users:
We are waiting for the best sergeant with a full face tattoo.
You can't see the text of the tattoo, but I can see the crosses. What is it for...
Yes, everything is visible there: Si vis pacem, para bellum. "If you want peace, prepare for war." And the crosses - yes. Apparently, the lad is also preparing for a possible outcome in such a war.
Well, at least not the SS emblem. Otherwise they can.
