Here's the trailer:

The Secretary of the Council of National Security and Defense of Ukraine, Alexander Turchinov, congratulated all the Marines; the official also pointed out that "black berets" establish the elite of all military forces.

Alexander Turchinov in his letter of congratulations to the fighters said: "Today, in the rows of Marines, there are genuine patriots and knights of their country. In the last two years', the majority of the fighters had been in ATO, into the very heart of the battle zones, opposing Russian aggression and making enemy feel fearful."
