Russia loses 73 military vehicles trying to cross Ukraine river, drone footage shows

By Alahna Kindred

This drone footage appears to show the moment the Russian army loses military equipment as they try and cross a river in Ukraine.

A video that was allegedly filmed by the 58th Independent Motorised Infantry Brigade appears to show the Russian military losing 73 pieces of equipment including tanks and infantry fighting vehicles.

In the clip they were attempting to build pontoon bridges across the Seversky Donets river near the village of Bilohorivka in Luhansk Oblast.

Military analysts have claimed two battalions of infantry with engineers were wiped out as Russian troops were picked off by Ukrainian forces.

They had allegedly been trying to cross the river for four days.

Luhansk Regional Military Administration head Serhii Haidai later confirmed "dozens" of troops had been killed and "about 70 units" of equipment destroyed.

The 58th Independent Motorised Infantry Brigade said (in Ukrainian): "The result of joint work of Vyhovsky [58th Independent Motorised Infantry Brigade] with other units of law enforcement agencies on the enemy crossing of the Seversky Donets River. Welcome to hell."

It comes Vladimir Putin continues to suffer heavy losses during his bungled invasion.

The 41st Russian colonel to die in the war in Ukraine has been identified as the latest blow to Putin’s war effort.

Lt Col Albert Karimov, 39, was a highly-decorated special forces officer in the GRU military intelligence.

His funeral was held yesterday in the village of Tirlyansky in his native Bashkortostan region.

Russia has not disclosed the circumstances of his death during Putin’s “special military operation” in Ukraine which has seen tens of thousands of his forces killed.

Nine Russian generals are also known to have died with reports that the US has assisted Ukraine with intelligence to allow them to target Putin’s top brass.

Karimov is the 41st known colonel to have died in the war which has devastated Russia’s senior ranks.

And Major-General Andrei Simonov, 56, became the ninth Russian general killed in Ukraine when he died in battle in Izyum near Kharkiv.

He was Russia's most respected electronics warfare commander, serving with the 2nd Combined Arms Army, and died in a devastating fightback by the Ukrainians against a Russian offensive.

More than 30 Russian armoured vehicles were destroyed in the attack along with around 100 Russian troops, unconfirmed reports suggest.

Losing senior military members can be a sign that an army is suffering from ill-discipline as generals and colonels are required to take control of their forces on the front lines.|
