Two sisters, whose father sacrificed his life defending Ukraine against the Russian invasion, could potentially face imprisonment for filming a video where they dance and twerk near the graves of fallen soldiers.

Despite the severe backlash the video has received, the sisters have justified their actions by claiming that their deceased father would have found their behavior amusing.

The two sisters, however, eventually admitted their error and acknowledged that the video was inappropriate. The police have confirmed that the two unidentified girls will be charged with grave desecration and may now face up to five years in prison.

A cellphone video shows two young sisters dressed in black crop tops and tight shorts performing a dance in the area of the fallen soldiers’ graves.

At first, one of the girls is seen setting her phone down on the ground to take pictures of the soldiers’ graves. She then raises her arms and starts to sway.

Then, her sister joins in and can be seen shaking her buttocks in front of the camera while appearing to be having a phone conversation.

This bizarre performance occurred on August 24th, when they went to visit their father’s grave in Kyiv’s Forest Cemetery.

According to reports, their father, a soldier in Ukraine’s Armed Forces, tragically died near Izium in the Donetsk region, which is located in the country’s east.

The video was discovered by the local police after the girls shared it on Instagram, resulting in a significant negative reaction from the public.

Ukrainian law enforcement quickly identified and tracked the sisters and detained them.

One of the sisters took to social media to express her regret and apologize in response to the overwhelming negative response.

My sister and I apologise. We honor every soldier who fell for our country. We visited the grave of our father who died near Izeum. Unfortunately, it was not right to publish this kind of video, although we did not intend it. To defame the heroes.

The sister stated that she and her sister believed their late father would have found the video and their dance amusing.

Our actions were tied to our understanding of what our late father thought about funeral customs,” she added, “so we didn’t see anything wrong at the time, but we regret it now.

Currently, the Ukrainian authorities are looking into the incident.
