Ukraine releases video showing Russia’s military equipment losses


As the Russian-Ukrainian war entered its second month on Monday, a video was released by the Ukrainian ministry showing the destruction of Russian military equipment. The aerial view of the destruction shows that there are a few vehicles parked in a deserted terrain and some sort of facility that appears to be of Russian origin. Parked vehicles exploded and thick fog can be seen rolling out as Russian military equipment is attacked by Ukrainian troops.

It is unknown where the Ukrainians mounted this attack, however, it could have come from one of their Bayrakhtar drones or shoulder-mounted RPG rocket launchers. Ukraine uses Turkish Bayrakhtar drones, UK-supplied bazookas and other military weaponry. Recently, the Ukrainian Defense Ministry said that the Russian invasion was continuing and that it seemed to focus more on the eastern region of Donbass. Ukraine further warned that Russia appears to be planning a major offensive in the eastern region.
