The occupants opened fire on their own during the liberation of Andriivka because of mass surrenders
During the counteroffensive operation in Andriivka, Volnovakha district, Donetsk region, the Russian command ordered to shoot at their own soldiers. The reason for this phantasmagorical decision was the massive surrender of the invaders to the Defense Forces.
Andriy Biletsky, commander of the Third Assault Brigade and founder of the Azov Regiment, said this on his Telegram channel. It was his fighters who were engaged in the liberation of a strategically important settlement (to watch the video, scroll to the end).
"The explosion is heard. The command post is quiet, everyone is shaking. The smoke is clearing and we see that all our targets are dead, one is smashed to pieces and two are lucky to be taken out alive. Luck plays a huge role in war," the defender said.
Biletsky believed that Russia's operation to kill its soldiers was on the verge of fantasy. He also assured that key footage from Andriivka, where the Ukrainian flag was restored, is still to come.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, the liberation of Andriivka is extremely important as it is a springboard for the Ukrainian Armed Forces to advance on Bakhmut.
Olena Danko, the head of the Ivanivkyi Starostynskyi district said that Andriivka is a small village that did not have infrastructure or even a post office. 7 people lived there before the outbreak of the war. They were mostly elderly people.
