"Sent to a Kobzon concert": Ukrainian Armed Forces destroy occupants' stronghold in Bakhmut sector. Video
Ukrainian servicemen continue to destroy equipment and personnel of the Russian occupation army in the east of our country. Enemy positions are being identified through effective aerial reconnaissance.
The invaders tried to hide one of the strongholds in a forest belt, but were eventually destroyed. This was reported on Telegram by the Commander of the Land Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Oleksandr Syrskyi (scroll to the bottom of the page to watch the video).
Soldiers of the 22nd Separate Mechanised Brigade thinned out the ranks of the Russian army in the Bakhmut sector. The Russians were struck with a 2C-1 Gvozdika self-propelled artillery system.
Aerial reconnaissance revealed a stronghold of the occupiers, who were trying to disguise their positions in a forest belt. The artillery received the coordinates and worked on the target.
As a result, after a few minutes, a group of Russian occupiers went to the "Kobzon concert".
As a reminder, Ukraine's defenders have cancelled out another Ka-52 attack helicopter of the Russian occupation army. Another enemy "bird" landed in the Bakhmut direction.
Later, it became known that the Ukrainian Armed Forces shot down a Russian Ka-52 helicopter for the second time on the morning of 17 August. In particular, another "Alligator" was downed by soldiers of the 47th Separate Mechanised Brigade near Robotyne in Zaporizhzhia.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, Ukraine's defenders "demilitarised" at least 480 war criminals at the frontline on 16 August. In total, on the 540th day of the full-scale war, the losses of the Russian occupation army have already exceeded 256,050 personnel.
