A Ukrainian college student studying abroad declared that her education could wait and it was time to “kill as many Russians” as she could.
Maryna Mazur was celebrating her 22nd birthday when Russia invaded Ukraine. The Mirror reported that Mazur’s mother, 51-year-old Lilila, had come to Berlin where she is studying business when the news broke.
“Emotionally I couldn’t just stay safe in my apartment in Germany and drink coffee and go to classes when all of this is going on,” Mazur said of her decision to return with her mother to Ukraine.
“Who would I be if I just stayed in safety? That would be impossible for me,” Mazur went on. The duo traveled from Berlin to Przemysi, Poland, six miles away from the Ukrainian border, before making their way toward their home just outside of the capital city of Kyiv.
“My family and friends are all in Ukraine,” Mazur said. “It’s better to go back and be with them and die with them than stay in safety in Germany.”
Though she has expressed that she possesses no military experience, Mazur was adamant about being a part of the defense of Ukraine, “I am willing to give my life to save others. I will give up my body and soul for freedom.”
Mazur joined Eric Bolling on Newsmax to discuss her specific statement, “Nothing matters now apart from family staying alive…and to kill as many Russians as I can.”

Mazur explained that it was the first thought that came to mind when the news broke, stating, “I think that my life is not any more valuable than those of Ukrainian military, of those men and women who protect our country.”
“So, it is my duty to give and make anything – anything I can to help and to save my country, to save my friends, to save my family, to save my little sister,” Mazur added emotionally.
Mazur made clear that she is not a violent person and that she wishes the circumstances were different, but that she has “no mercy” for the people who have bombed her home and the home of her friends and countrymen.
When asked if she had a concern about being on a kill list of Russian President Vladimir Putin, Mazur flatly stated, “If someone is coming for me, they’re gonna die.”
Mazur and her mother were accompanied by nearly 200 others traveling back into Ukraine to defend against the Russian invasion. Igor Matviyko told the Mirror that he was a butcher living in Ireland for 20 years, but he left his wife and daughter to return to his mother’s home and defend the nation.
“I’m not a hero,” Matviyko said, “this is just life. I don’t want to die, but I’m willing to defend my country.”
Oleh Monka, 23, said, “If need to I will fight, but my main priority is to help my family.”
Mazur has never even held a gun, but her desire to learn to shoot and make Molotov cocktails adds to the growing number of civilians, like Raisa Smatko, who have been contributing to the effort in Ukraine.
Smatko, a grandmother and retired economist, was recently highlighted for her effort to help make Molotov cocktails to push back against the Russian invasion.
