Commenting on the video, a Twitter user wrote, " Thank you for sharing this, sir. Makes my heart leap. Russia does not have enough brutality and sadism to break (Flag of Ukraine) people. (Flag of Ukraine) is hope and belief in everything that is dear to me and many people in the West. Keep reminding us, our governments about our common values. I do it too."
"Absolutely beautiful. Ukrainians are what dreams are made of. I congratulate and wish a long and merry life to the couple. And thank you to the firemen for keeping everyone safe," wrote another user.
