The Russian ZRPC "Pantsir-S1" shot down a Ukrainian UAV "Bayraktar" at a distance of 18 km. The UAV "Bayraktar" of the AFU carried 4 missiles that did not detonate and did not explode. The missiles were seized for examination.


A massive strike by the Russian heavy multiple launch rocket system "Smerch" on the deployment area of the S-300 air defense system of Ukraine, led to an accurate hit in one of the installations of the S-300 air defense system and a powerful explosion of its missiles.


There was a video of the work of PMCs Wagner in Ukraine. Soldiers of the private Russian military company Wagner, using the MT-12 Rapier anti-tank gun and the AGS-17 Flame 30 mm automatic grenade launcher, methodically destroy the fortified positions of the Ukrainian army.

A damaged Russian Su-25 landed in Ukraine on one engine. While performing a combat mission in Ukraine, a Su-25 aircraft, the second in the pair, was hit by a missile fired from the ground by Ukrainian servicemen. The pilot of the damaged aircraft decided to turn off the damaged engine and not leave the aircraft. At this time, the leader of the pair, Lieutenant Colonel Denis Litvinov, seeing the launch of another rocket, released heat traps and covered his friend’s damaged plane from missiles with his plane.

Rare footage of the explosion of the Russian Iskander missile in close proximity to Ukrainian soldiers appeared


Footage of the sortie of the Su-35 fighter in Ukraine. The Su-35 fighter is armed with R-73, R-77 short and medium-range air-to-air missiles, as well as Kh-31P anti-radar missiles


Many battles now in Ukraine have become positional due to the huge number of fortified areas created literally in settlements over 8 years. In this situation, the role of artillery has become more important than ever. One of the key roles in the work of Russian artillery in Ukraine is assigned to the 152-mm Msta-S self-propelled artillery mount. At an arms exhibition in 1993 in Abu Dhabi, Msta-S hit 38 out of 40 targets at a distance of 15 km.

Published footage of the army evacuators BREM-1 in Ukraine. The video shows the evacuation of the damaged T-72B3 tank from the battlefield. In the current conditions, the repair of military equipment in Ukraine is carried out in an aggregate way. The main task is to restore and return equipment to the front as quickly as possible.


Russian troops and militia special forces, with the help of anti-tank systems, delivered an accurate missile attack on repeater towers in Ukraine. Soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine installed surveillance cameras on the towers and used them to correct the fire of the artillery of the Ukrainian army. With the help of ATGM guided missiles, all targets were destroyed.

A Czech-made RM-70 multiple launch rocket system has been spotted in Ukraine. RM-70 MLRS have been produced in Czechoslovakia since 1972. The RM-70 can be considered an analogue of the Soviet Grad MLRS, but the system has a number of distinct advantages. For example, it has greater cross-country ability and is able to hit targets at a greater distance. Until now, about fifty such MLRS remained in the Czech Republic, most of them were decommissioned and were in storage.

An attempt by Ukrainian soldiers to shoot down a Russian plane with MANPADS


The Russian army stopped the APU's attempt to cross the river. The battle unfolded on the Seversky Donets River, presumably near the village of Petrovskoye, where the Ukrainian army created a pontoon crossing and tried to cross the river. Russian motorized skirmishers engaged in battle and adjusted artillery fire on the guided crossing and the AFU equipment sheltering in the forest. As a result of the battle, the ferry was destroyed and drowned. The Ukrainian troops who managed to cross were destroyed by artillery fire.

The American M777A2 howitzers came to Ukraine without the AFCS digital fire control system. The system allows for automatic correction of fire by GPS, which allows you to increase the pace and accuracy of shooting. Why this electronic unit was removed is not clear, perhaps because of fears that the howitzer will fall into the hands of the Russian army. There have already been reports that one howitzer has been captured by Russia. It is worth noting that the M777 howitzer is quite good and the lightest in the world. One of the problems when using it in Ukraine may be the cost of ammunition, the price of a projectile from $ 60,000.


Russian troops used incendiary shells MZ-21 on Azovstal in Mariupol. The Ukrainian media immediately announced phosphorus ammunition, but in fact unguided rockets MZ-21 were used. The 9M22S projectile is designed for firing from the BM-21 Grad combat vehicle. The incendiary element of the projectile is a shell of hexagonal cross-section made of magnesium alloy ML-5, in the blind socket of which a pyrotechnic composition is pressed.


The Azov battalion surrendered in the city of Mariupol. The wounded are being taken out of Azovstal. The commander of the Azov, Denis Prokopenko, published a video message in which he de facto recognized the surrender of the Azov. "The defenders of Mariupol fulfilled the order, despite all the difficulties, they delayed the superior enemy forces for 82 days and allowed the Ukrainian army to regroup, prepare more personnel and receive a large amount of weapons from partner countries. No weapons will work without professionally trained military personnel, which makes them the most valuable element of the army. For the sake of saving lives, the entire Mariupol garrison fulfills the approved decision of the supreme military command and hopes for the support of the Ukrainian people."

Footage of the combat operation of the Orlan-10 UAV was shown by the Russian Defense Ministry. The Orlan-10 UAV began to be delivered to the troops in 2010 and by now is the most massive UAV of the Russian army used in Ukraine. The Orlan-10 has a mass of 14 kg and is capable of carrying up to 4 high-explosive shells. In various configurations, UAVs can conduct surveillance in the optical and infrared range. Orlan‑10 is capable of automatically detecting the positions of switched-on GSM phones, VHF communication stations, operating radars.


The Russian army in the Zaporozhye direction stopped an attempt to counterattack the Ukrainian armed forces. An attempt to attack Russian units by the forces of two Ukrainian mechanized battalions on tanks and infantry fighting vehicles was made near the village of Vishnevoye, Zaporozhye region. The enemy was spotted in time, UAVs and Russian artillery strikes were inflicted on parts of the Ukrainian army. After that, Russian tanks, BPM and infantry units, supported by artillery, destroyed the retreating equipment of Ukraine. According to the results of the battle, 26 Ukrainian tanks, 12 infantry fighting vehicles and about 100 soldiers were destroyed.

Video of the heroic battle of the Russian T-80BVM tank in Ukraine in the Kharkov region. On the video, you can see that the Russian T-80 tank was damaged, but it continues to fight, the Russian tank is attacked from all sides by Ukrainian soldiers with grenade launchers, but it does not leave the battlefield.


American M777 howitzers recently received by Ukraine from the United States have already come under attack by Russian troops. Russian kamikaze drones "KUB-UAV" were used for the strike. After the drone strike, the artillery battery of Ukraine went into the forest, after which they were hit by Russian artillery. The video is cropped due to poor quality


The work of Russian combat crews of 152-mm self-propelled howitzers "Msta-S" and "Acacia-M" in Ukraine, the fire of Russian artillery is corrected by the drone "Orlan-10".

Today the first trial will be held in the city of Rostov-on-Don over the soldiers of the Aidar battalion who surrendered. Denis Maruga, who took part in the explosion of the bridge in 2019, as a result of which people were killed, will appear before the court. Muryga personally confessed to this during the interrogation. In total, 1,700 soldiers of the Ukrainian army have already surrendered from the Azovstal plant.

A soldier of Ukraine spoke about the catastrophic state of affairs at the front and the consequences of Russian artillery strikes and the Grad MLRS in Ukraine. The combat work of the MLRS "Grad" of Russia in Ukraine and the story of a serviceman of the Armed Forces of Ukraine further in the video. A short translation of the Ukrainian soldier's speech about the situation at the front. “The strikes of Russian artillery and the Grad MLRS go exactly where they need to, everything is in smoke, everything is constantly under fire, everything is destroyed, the trenches are broken, there is constant shelling, there is no support for Ukrainian artillery yet, they have been shelling for three days already, there is no reaction from Ukrainian artillery everything is falling apart"


Supplies of Western weapons to Ukraine are in full swing. Dutch tracked armored vehicles YPR-765 were spotted in Ukraine without regular weapons. The YPR-765 armored personnel carrier was developed in the USA in 1970 on the basis of the M113 armored personnel carrier. The Pentagon was not interested in it and the license for its production was sold to the Netherlands. The YPR-765 BMP delivered to Ukraine turned out to be without a turret with an automatic cannon and without a paired machine gun.

As it is known, the Russian sapper robots "Uran-6" were delivered by Russia to Ukraine, previously reported, we show the direct work of the operator to control the mine clearance robot "Uran-6" in Ukraine. The robot's reservation allows you to withstand the explosion of even an anti-tank mine. The control of the military robot "Uranus-6" is remote. The main task of the sapper robot is to make passages in minefields and quickly clear the areas.

The work of the 2S5 self-propelled gun "Hyacinth-S" combat crew in Ukraine was shown by the Russian Defense Ministry. The 2S5 self-propelled gun was adopted in 1975 and received the nickname "Genocide" for its high efficiency and reliability. Unlike other self-propelled guns, Hyacinth was not supplied to the USSR in any country in the world.


The servicemen of the 58th Motorized Infantry Brigade of Ukraine appealed to Vladimir Zelensky with a statement of refusal to fight further. According to them, many of them have never held weapons in their hands in their lives, they do not have ammunition, weapons and food, and therefore they refuse to carry out combat missions.


In an attempt to stop the offensive of the Russian army, the Ukrainian army tried to blow up the dam of the Uglegorsk thermal power plant reservoir while the dam stood. In case of its breakthrough, the water can flood three settlements – Svetlodarsk, Mironovsky and Lugansk with a population of 15,000 people.
