Soldiers from the Russian Volunteer Corps conducted a recent operation near Russia, ambushing a Russian vehicle in the Bryansk region, resulting in casualties among the occupiers.
The Russian Volunteer Corps reported this, and sources within the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine confirmed the operation to OBOZ.UA.
"On January 18, a reconnaissance group from the Russian Volunteer Corps ambushed an enemy vehicle in the Suzemsky district of the Bryansk region. Footage for objective control will be available later," stated the Russian Volunteer Corps in an official announcement.
Russian volunteers shared a photo, presumably taken during the operation.
They also displayed a screenshot of the "feedback" on the operation from Russian propagandists.
One Russian public complained that "an enemy subversive group ambushed a Ural vehicle from the Ministry of Defense in the Suzemsky district of the Bryansk region."
"Unfortunately, we have casualties. The enemy subversive group attacked the truck and immediately withdrew. Border guards quickly arrived to assist, providing first aid and evacuating the wounded. Details are being clarified," wrote the propagandists.
Interestingly, on the day of the events, the Mash Telegram channel, affiliated with the Russian presidential administration, reported an "attempted infiltration of a Ukrainian DRG" into the Bryansk region. The pro-government source claimed the "attempt" was "unsuccessful." Mash also mentioned losses, attributing them to "saboteurs" and not the occupiers.
"A Ukrainian subversive group of about 20 people attempted to enter Russian territory on the border with the Bryansk region. It was unsuccessful. According to our information, armed with assault rifles, machine guns, and grenades, the Ukrainian Armed Forces attempted to attack a truck in the village of Zernovo, Suzemsky district. After being repulsed by our border guards, they retreated, suffering significant losses," narrated the propagandists in their customary style.
Earlier, news emerged about the elimination of a Federal Security Service lieutenant colonel in the Bryansk region, orchestrated by Russian Volunteer Corps fighters. During the raid, they ambushed a vehicle from the Russian Border Guard Service, carrying the occupier Sergei Shaty, the deputy head of the logistics department, who died on the spot.
It was also reported that Russian Federal Security Service officers, border guards, and military personnel were eliminated during a Russian Volunteer Corps raid in the Kursk region. The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine announced the "scaling up" of such operations on enemy territory.
