Skilful and well-coordinated: Rubizh National Guard Brigade repels powerful enemy attack near Bakhmut. Video
Soldiers of the National Guard's Rubizh rapid response brigade repelled a powerful attack near Bakhmut. Ukrainian defenders destroyed three enemy tanks and three armoured infantry vehicles.
This was reported to OBOZREVATEL by the National Guard. The National Guard also shared the relevant video (to watch the video, scroll to the end of the news).
As can be seen from the footage, Ukrainian soldiers used a drone to detect the movement of an enemy armoured column - Russian tanks and infantry fighting vehicles were moving along the field road between the landings.
Our defenders opened fire on the enemy, and the Russian armoured vehicles turned around and tried to hide. However, their efforts were in vain.
Ukrainian artillerymen worked quickly and accurately, smashing the Russian equipment to pieces. The footage clearly shows enemy tanks and armoured vehicles exploding one by one, along with the occupiers.
"The Rubizh National Guard Brigade skilfully and coherently repelled a powerful enemy attack with armoured vehicles south of Bakhmut. The movement of the enemy column was detected in time. Then the artillerymen worked quickly and accurately. As a result of repulsing the enemy's offensive, the enemy lost 3 tanks and 3 armoured personnel carriers," the National Guard commented on the video.
As a reminder, the National Guard recently destroyed an enemy mortar along with its ammunition in the Bakhmut sector. The occupiers' equipment exploded and caught fire in a spectacular manner.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, Ukrainian defenders eliminated another 460 occupants over the past day, burned 12 tanks and 19 enemy artillery systems. The updated data was released by the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
