I guess you could say she set her sights on him.
According to a report from The New York Post, famed Ukrainian sniper Evgenia Emerald — known as her country’s “Joan of Arc,” tied the knot recently to a soldier she met at the beginning of the Russian invasion.
From The New York Post:
The 31-year-old sniper and fellow soldier Evgeniy Stipanyuk were married Friday near the frontline of the war in a ceremony held in a forest in Kharkiv.
The wedding date was especially meaningful to the couple, as Friday was Defenders’ Day, a public holiday honoring veterans and fallen members of the Ukrainian armed forces. It also happened to be Stipanyuk’s birthday.
A military General officiated the wedding for the pair, who fell in love soon after the war began in February and quickly became engaged in August.
“We understand that every day could be the last one and we don’t want to postpone life for later,” Emerald wrote on Instagram.
