Ukraine's 54th Brigade Ends Russian Attack With Armor "Cemetary" Near Bakhmut

This action again suggests that Russian advances are meeting fierce resistance from artillery and drones, which have thwarted the Russian Donetsk/Luhansk, rendering that  offensive less successful than the Kremlin has demanded of its troops. JL 

Militarnyi reports:

Soldiers of the 54th Separate Mechanized Brigade defeated a Russian armor assault and showed a “cemetery” of Russian armor in their sector at Verkhnokamianske of the Bakhmut district, eight kilometers north of Belohorivka on the way to Siversk. Destroyed were two MT-LB armored personnel carriers, on one of which a turret from the BTR-70 and protective “grilles” were installed, a BMP-1, a “tank shed,” (eg, "Turtle tank") and two soldiers on motorcycles. 

In the Donetsk region, the Defense Forces defeated the armor of Russian assault men trying to break through to Verkhnokamianske.

Soldiers of the 54th Separate Mechanized Brigade showed footage with a small “cemetery” of Russian armor in their sector.

On one section of the road, the invaders lost two MT-LB armored personnel carriers, on one of which a turret from the BTR-70 and protective “grilles” were installed.


Also during the attack, the Russians lost an armored vehicle BMP-1 and a “tank shed,” which they tried to protect with a mass of grilles from all sides.

The “K-2” Battalion said that then the invaders had sent two soldiers on motorcycles to the defeated armor.


“The desperate invaders must have been very guilty of the leadership, otherwise it is very difficult to understand the motivation of such actions,” the military said.


Ukrainian positions immediately opened fire on the Russians. Drones that dropped explosives were also used.


They decided to eliminate the invaders with an anti-tank mine, which the Ukrainian military dropped from a drone on the MT-LB, near which the Russians were hiding.

“After rifle attacks, drops from drones and artillery, it was decided not to waste precious ammunition and put an anti-tank mine on MT-LB,” the military said.
