Acanthis flammea or hornemanni? (Ukraine)

Help me id. this redpoll. today watched a flock of redpolls at home. Birds responded excitedly to the voice. And this single person flew closer to me when I turned on a voice of another species (A.hornemanni). I did not see this bird from the side of the back.

Acanthis flammea for me. Too heavy streaking on the flanks for A. hornemanni - that has pure white flanks or only fine streaks.
