WAR IN UKRAINE: Defenders Bomb Russian Positions As Invaders Sent Fleeing

This is the moment Ukrainian soldiers bomb Russian military positions and send invading troops fleeing.

The Ukrainian Centre for Strategic Communications said the attack was carried out by members of the 30th Mechanized Brigade, named after Prince Konstanty Ostrogski, a formation of the Ukrainian Ground Forces.

The Ukrainian military said on 24th May: “Specialists of the 30th separate mechanized brigade named after Prince Konstantin Ostrozky tested the racists on the run.”

Russian troops invaded Ukraine on 24th February in what the Kremlin is still calling a “special military operation”. Today marks the 91st day of the campaign.

From 24th February to 25th May, the total combat losses of Russian troops stand at around 29,450 personnel, according to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

The Ukrainian military also claims that Russia has lost 1,305 tanks, 3,213 armoured fighting vehicles, 606 artillery systems, 201 multiple launch rocket systems, 93 anti-aircraft systems, 206 warplanes, 170 helicopters, 2,217 motor vehicles and fuel tankers, 13 vessels, 491 unmanned aerial vehicles, 44 units of special equipment, and 112 cruise missiles.

Meanwhile, Russian forces are currently trying to encircle the eastern cities of Sievierodonetsk, Lysychansk and Rubizhne, according to the UK Ministry of Defence.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said Russian forces are trying to destroy “everything living” in the embattled Donbas region and he reiterated that his country remains disposed to exchange prisoners with Russia.

Last week, President Zelenskyy called Russia’s invasion of Ukraine an “absolute failure” and said Russian leaders were afraid to acknowledge “that catastrophic mistakes were made at the highest military and state level”.
