Ukrainian Troops Show Charred Remains Of Russian Military Gear Scattered Across Battlefield

It is unclear where exactly in Ukraine the images were filmed, but they were obtained from the 28th Mechanized Brigade.

These images show the charred remains of Russian military gear scattered across a battlefield after they were taken out by Ukrainian forces.

The footage appears to show the remains of Russian military vehicles and possibly troops at an undisclosed location in Ukraine, somewhere along the front lines.

It is unclear where exactly in Ukraine the images were filmed, but they were obtained from the 28th Mechanized Brigade of the Ukrainian Ground Forces – also known as the 28th Separate Mechanized Brigade named after the Knights of the Winter Campaign – on Monday, July 25, along with a short statement saying: “Step by step we free our land from invaders.

“All the evil that sits in the fields will be burned out by Will and by Iron. We will take revenge for all the grief these inhumans have caused us.

“Glory to the heroes!”

The 28th Mechanized Brigade is stationed in the Odesa region during peacetime.

The images were also relayed by the Center for Strategic Communications and Information Security, which operates under the umbrella of the Ministry of Culture and Information of Ukraine.

Zenger News contacted the 28th Mechanized Brigade for further comment, as well as the Russian Ministry of Defense, but had not received a reply at the time of writing.

Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24 in what the Kremlin is calling a “special military operation”. Tuesday marks the 153rd day of the invasion.

The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported that between February 24 and July 26, Russia had lost about 39,870 personnel, 1,737 tanks, 3,959 armored combat vehicles, 880 artillery units, 258 multiple launch rocket systems, 117 air defense systems, 222 warplanes, 189 helicopters, 722 drones, 174 cruise missiles, 15 warships, 2,835 motor vehicles and fuel tankers, and 75 units of special equipment.

Russia has claimed that its casualties have been much lower, but provides infrequent updates on its latest figures.

Ukraine has said that it hopes to begin exporting grain again via its ports in the coming days.

Russian energy company Gazprom has said that it will once again cut gas supplies to the EU through its main pipeline from Wednesday. It has attributed the move to maintenance work.

President Zelensky has called on Europe to hit back against Russia’s “gas war”.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has said that his country’s primary goal is to topple the Ukrainian government.

The Ukrainian authorities have credited the systems, which were delivered in late June, with having helped them turn the war in their favor by helping them to undermine Russian logistics and slow down the invader’s offensive ability.

Two American citizens who were killed in Ukraine in early July have been named as Luke Lucyszyn and Bryan Young. They were killed when they were ambushed by a Russian tank on July 18, according to their Ukrainian commander, Ruslan Miroshnichenko.
