According to reports, the 93rd Mechanized Brigade of Ukraine destroyed several Russian tanks in eastern Ukraine.
The video appears to show numerous vehicles being struck by Ukrainian artillery in the eastern Ukrainian region of Kharkiv.
The video was obtained from the Ukrainian Armed Forces’ 93rd Mechanized Brigade, also known as the 93rd Independent Kholodnyi Yar Mechanized Brigade.
Additionally, it was disseminated by the Ukrainian government’s Center for Strategic Communications and Information Security, which is a division of the Ministry of Culture and Information.
“The 93rd Cold Yar Brigade destroyed 11 units of enemy equipment, including tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, and Lynx combat vehicles,” the 93rd Mechanized Brigade stated in a brief statement obtained on Wednesday.
The Kholodnoyars are staunchly guarding the Izium region and reiterating that the Russian army is not as strong as their propaganda suggests.
Because it is defending its own territory, the Ukrainian army is highly motivated.
Izium is a city located on the Donets River in the eastern Ukrainian region of Kharkiv Oblast.
Officials from Russia and Ukraine were contacted by Zenger News for comment, but as of the time of writing, no response had been received.
