Ukrainian kamikaze drones attacked the Russian oil refinery in Ryazan of the Ryazannefteprodukt company. A total of 3 drones took part in the attack; judging by the video, it seems that the drones did not strike at programmed coordinates, but were controlled manually. As a result of the drone strike, a fire started at the oil refinery, two petroleum products processing units caught fire, the fire area was 150 square meters.

Footage of the destruction of two Ukrainian Mi-17V-5 helicopters; previously the US planned to transfer helicopters to Afghanistan. The helicopters were destroyed in the Novopavlovka area in the Dnepropetrovsk region at a temporary site. First, the helicopters were hit, presumably from a 300-mm MLRS, with 3B30 cluster munitions and 9M55K5 missiles. After the helicopters were immobilized, the attack was carried out by two missiles from a Su-34 aircraft, this was reported later. As a result of the attack, 2 Mi-17 helicopters were destroyed, the third flew away. 2 pilots were killed, according to Ukrainian media.

Footage of the Russian kamikaze drone Lancet-51 hitting an American-made Ukrainian Island-class patrol boat. The shooting was carried out in the Southern Bug in Nikolaev, 50 kilometers from the front line. The Island-class patrol boat was developed in 1985 and is used by the US Coast Guard; it is now being replaced by other boats. The patrol boat is armed with two 12.7 and 7.62 machine guns; a 25-mm 2M-3M anti-aircraft artillery mount was also installed in Ukraine. The boat is equipped with a radar and has a speed of up to 29 knots, with a crew of 16 people. As a result of the strike from the Lancet-51 drone, the boat did not receive any visible serious damage and continued to move.

Footage of an inspection inside an American-made Ukrainian M1A1 SA Abrams tank. The tank had previously been hit or hit a mine in the Avdeevsky direction, this is the outskirts of Berdychi, after which the crew abandoned it. These tanks were received by the 47th separate mechanized brigade "Magura". The M1A1SA Abrams tank is a modification of the eighties, improved to meet the requirements for tanks of the late nineties. In terms of equipment and capabilities, the M1A1SA tank is similar to tanks of the next modification M1A2 of the early series.

Use of the T-72 tank and BMP-3 during the assault on Georgievka. Footage of the assault in the area of Georgievka, a stronghold of the Ukrainian army located nearby in a forest belt. The video shows the use of a presumably Russian T-72 tank and a BMP-3 armored personnel carrier. A group of combat vehicles is moving under Ukrainian artillery fire towards a strong point. When approaching the positions, the tank and infantry fighting vehicles begin to suppress the firing points, after which troops land from the BMP-3 and storm the strong point. The video was filmed in the Maryinsky direction and shortened, the end of the battle is shown on the telegram channel.

Footage of the Russian upgraded Kh-101 missile hitting the Ukrainian DneproGES this morning. In the video you can also hear the sound of the Russian hypersonic missile Kinzhal flying. During the flight, the Kh-101 missile uses the L-504 onboard defense system, firing anti-aircraft decoys. The missile was put into service in 2012 and is equipped with a turbojet bypass engine allowing it to reach speeds of up to 970 km/h at a range of at least 4,500 kilometers, the weight of the missile warhead is 400 kg. As a result of Russian missile strikes, the DneproGES received severe damage, and the station's turbine room caught fire.

Footage from the first captured German-made Marder infantry fighting vehicle in Ukraine. The Marder infantry fighting vehicle was adopted by Germany in 1971 and is armed with a 20 mm gun; technical information about it is on the channel. Previously, the Ukrainian army received about 40 Marder infantry fighting vehicles from Germany. Visually, the combat vehicle is almost operational and has full ammunition. The combat vehicle was damaged in the Avdiivka direction and got stuck in the mud; later Ukrainian units tried to destroy it. The evacuation of the Ukrainian Marder infantry fighting vehicle was reportedly carefully planned by the Russian army. The military carried out reconnaissance, engineers paved a new road, and sappers cleared minefields. Only after access to the vehicle was secured was it evacuated from the battlefield at night with the help of a tank. The vehicle will not be used in combat; presumably, the Marder BMP will be sent for study to Russia or shelling at a training ground.

Study in Russia of the downed Storm Shadow cruise missile of the Ukrainian army. Footage of an inspection of the insides of a downed Ukrainian cruise missile Storm Shadow or SCALP-EG of Anglo-French production. The Storm Shadow missile was shot down by Russian air defense or intercepted by electronic warfare systems. Reportedly, every time missiles are intercepted, they are dismantled and sent for study to Russia, to improve the operation of electronic warfare and air defense systems.

Ukrainian media published footage of an attack by Ukrainian FPV drones on Russian robotic platforms. The video was filmed in the Avdeevsky direction. It is unknown what model of robot was used by the Russian army, but it is equipped with AGS-17 grenade launchers and a TM-62 anti-tank mine installation system. Judging by the number on the robot, at least 6 of them have already been produced. There are no details of the battle, but the robots participated in the battle and for an unknown reason stand motionless. The video shows how Ukrainian FPV drones attack them. We can say that we are witnessing the first robot battles in Ukraine.

Footage of Russian military personnel being delivered on an ATV to the front line. The evacuation group of the medical company of the 106th Airborne Division of Russia is attacked by a Ukrainian FPV drone, but apparently due to the influence of electronic warfare it greatly misses. Ukrainian artillery strikes are also visible. The location of the shooting and the model of the ATV were not disclosed.

Three Ukrainian drones attacked at 5:45 a.m. the Russian oil refinery Elaz-Nefteproduct in Nizhnekamsk and an enterprise with a dormitory in Yelabuga. Presumably, Ukrainian Aeroprakt aircraft converted into drones were used for the attack. The refinery was reportedly not damaged. The dormitory was damaged as a result of the attacks

Russian kamikaze drones "Geran" again attacked Kharkov and the Kharkov region on the night of April 4. The strikes were carried out on energy infrastructure facilities and facilities where, according to Russian media reports, military personnel were stationed. In Ukraine they are already announcing the destruction of 80% of generating capacities; eyewitnesses filmed videos of the attacks that occurred right next to them.

The video shows an assault by a Russian unit, with the support of armored vehicles, on a stronghold of the Ukrainian army in the Novomikhailovka area. The video has been shortened, the dead Ukrainian soldiers are hidden. The Ukrainian army reportedly stormed the stronghold for two days afterwards, but was unable to retake it.
