WAR IN UKRAINE: Russian Military Equipment Destroyed By Ukrainian Forces

These images reportedly show Russian military equipment being destroyed by Ukrainian forces near the southern cities of Mykolaiv and Kherson.

The footage appears to show Russian military forces being destroyed by Ukrainian firepower, with large plumes of dark grey smoke rising into the air as they are hit in open fields.

Some military vehicles can be seen attempting to flee as explosions place around them. The footage appears to show at least some of the fleeing vehicles being hit, with a plume of black smoke then rising into the air. Another military vehicle can be seen attempting to drive away from the scene as the footage ends.

The images were obtained from the Ukrainian Armed Forces’ 28th Separate Mechanized Brigade, who said: “The artillery war continues, the 28th brigade chases and burns the occupiers’ equipment on the landings of Kherson and Mykolayiv regions. Escaping conquerors flee our land.”

They added: “Kherson hold on, we’re close!”

The 28th Separate Mechanized Brigade is named after the Knights of the Winter Campaign, who were forces who fought against Bolshevik forces during the Ukrainian-Soviet War that lasted from 1919 to 1920.

Russian troops invaded Ukraine on 24th February in what the Kremlin is still calling a “special military operation”. Today marks the 96th day of the campaign.

From 24th February to 29th May, the total combat losses of Russian troops stand at around 30,150 personnel, according to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

The Ukrainian military also claims that Russia has lost 1,338 tanks, 3,270 armoured fighting vehicles, 631 artillery systems, 203 multiple launch rocket systems, 93 anti-aircraft systems, 207 warplanes, 174 helicopters, 2,240 motor vehicles and fuel tankers, 13 vessels, 504 unmanned aerial vehicles, 48 units of special equipment, and 116 cruise missiles.

Last week, Ukrainian officials said Russian forces attacked over 40 towns in the eastern Donbas region.

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree that makes it easier for Ukrainians in occupied areas to become citizens of Russia.

Russia has also done away with the upper age limit for contractual service in its military.

Ukraine has called Russia’s offer to lift the blockade of its Black Sea ports in return for the lifting of some sanctions “blackmail”.

The blockade has led to shortages in wheat and cooking oil across the world.
