Don’t mess with the mayor of Kyiv, Ukraine’s capital.
Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko, a former heavyweight boxing champion, told reporters he was ready to fight for Ukraine.
He wasn’t kidding.
Photos of him manning a machine gun in the fight against the Russian invasion started going viral Friday on social media.
“Ukrainians are not backing down,” Aviva Klompas tweeted with his image.
Vitali Klitschko and his brother, Wladimir, posted a video asking for support Thursday.
