Moment Ukrainian Forces Target Russian Line Of Trenches And Camouflaged Dugouts

The current front lines in Ukraine have been described as evolving into World War I-style trench warfare.

These images purport to show the moment Ukrainian forces target a Russian line of trenches and camouflaged dugouts.

The footage, which appears to have been shot by a drone and was obtained from the 28th Mechanized Brigade of the Ukrainian Ground Forces, shows a long line of fortified military positions that include what appear to be trenches and camouflaged dugouts.

The footage then shows these positions being hit by ordnance, causing large explosions and black smoke to rise into the air.

The 28th Mechanized Brigade said: “Gunners from the 28th Mechanized Brigade named after the Knights of the First Winter Campaign skillfully hit and ruthlessly ‘fry’ the masked positions of the occupiers in the southern direction. Neither trenches nor camouflage will help the Russian invaders. Glory to the Armed Forces of Ukraine!”

It is currently unclear where exactly in Ukraine the footage was filmed but the 28th Mechanized Brigade is usually headquartered in the Odesa Oblast region in peacetime.

The First Winter Campaign was fought by the Ukrainian People’s Republic (UPR) against Bolshevik forces in Ukraine during the Ukrainian-Soviet War (1917-1921).

The current front lines in Ukraine have been described as evolving into World War I-style trench warfare.

Russian troops invaded Ukraine on February 24 in what the Kremlin is still calling a “special military operation.” Today marks the 107th day of the campaign.

The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported that between 24th February and 10th June, Russia had lost 31,900 personnel, 1,409 tanks, 3,450 armored fighting vehicles, 712 artillery pieces, 222 multiple launch rocket systems, 97 anti-aircraft systems, 212 warplanes, 178 helicopters, 2,438 motor vehicles and fuel tankers, 13 warships, 572 tactical drones, 54 pieces of special equipment and 125 cruise missiles.

Over 1,000 Ukrainian troops captured in Mariupol have been transferred to Russia, according to Russian media. Ukrainian officials estimate that at least 21,000 civilians have been killed in the city.

Two British men, Aiden Aslin, 28, and Shaun Pinner, 48, have been sentenced to death by a court in Russian-controlled eastern Ukraine after being captured while fighting with the Ukrainian army in Mariupol against Russian troops.

An aide to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has said that Ukraine is losing up to 200 troops a day.

The United Kingdom and the United States are sending long-range missile systems to Ukraine. Russian President Vladimir Putin has warned of more attacks in Ukraine if the West sends long-range weapons.

President Putin has said that the West will not be able to wean itself off from Russian oil and gas for years. US officials have now also admitted that Russian profits on energy might even be higher than they were before the war started.

President Zelenskyy has said that Russian attacks on the cities of Severodonetsk and Lysychansk have turned them into “dead cities.” But he added that Ukrainian forces could still hold Severodonetsk despite being outnumbered.

Russia’s ambassador to the United Nations, Vassily Nebenzia, walked out of a Security Council meeting after his country was blamed by European Council president Charles Michel for triggering a global food crisis.

President Zelenskyy has requested that a corridor be set up so that the country may export grain currently stuck in Ukrainian ports.

The European Parliament has adopted a resolution recommending that the European Union grant Ukraine the status of candidate country for EU membership. Some 438 members of the European Parliament voted in favor of the resolution, with 65 voting against and 94 abstaining.
