NEPAL: A Russian mountaineer and blogger unfurled the Ukrainian flag on top of world’s highest peak, Mount Everest, in protest against the ongoing war between her country and Ukraine.
The mountaineer, Katya Lipka, shared few pictures of the moment on Instagram on Friday (June 3) which are viral now.
According to the post, which is in Russian, Ms Lipka achieved the feat on May 24, three months after Russia invaded Ukraine. “The summit of Everest 8848m,” she captioned the post.
Ms Lipka further explained that due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, “something inside turned upside down”.
A picture of the mountaineer has also been shared by Olexander Scherba, former Ukrainian Ambassador to Austria on Twitter who served the country for seven years.
