This is the moment Ukrainian soldiers bomb a Russian howitzer division based at a local railway station, with Ukrainian general staff saying that victory was getting closer “every day”.
The attack took place at the Trostianets railway station in the city of Trostianets in the northern Ukrainian region of Sumy Oblast on the night of 15th to 16th March.
The footage was obtained by Newsflash from the 93rd Mechanised Brigade, a formation of the Ukrainian Ground Forces, this morning (16th March), along with a statement saying: “Good news for your timeline. Fighters of the 93rd brigade of the Cold Yar at night managed to jewel the Gaubic artillery division of the occupant 2C19 ‘Msta-C’ [howitzer].
“The enemy placed a device on the square of the railway station in Trostianets in the region of Sumy Oblast. To stop the occupant’s procedure and not cause serious damage to civil infrastructure was a difficult task. However, the cold-hearted soldiers managed to cope with it.”
The Ukrainian brigade added: “Every day is a step closer to victory!”
The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine also released the footage with the same message.
Meanwhile, the first delivery of humanitarian aid has been distributed among residents of occupied Trostianets.
Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine on 24th February in what the Kremlin is still calling a “special military operation” to “demilitarise and denazify” the sovereign European state.
The invasion has caused millions of people to flee the country, sparking Europe’s biggest refugee crisis since World War II.
Meanwhile, a 40-mile-long Russian military convoy is currently closing in on the Ukrainian capital Kyiv, however it has remained stalled to the north of the city for over a week.
Today marks the 21st day since Russia invaded the neighbouring nation.
