Ukrainian drone forces shoot down Russian soldiers in Soledar enemy offensive
Ukraine’s State Border Guard Service on Wednesday released video claiming to show the Ukrainian forces stopping an advance of Russian forces in Soledar.
The State Border Guard Service said that Ukraine’s aerial reconnaissance detected an enemy infantry group. The intel was then reported to the command point of the defence forces of Ukraine that took an action.
The Russian and Ukrainian militaries said there was heavy fighting Wednesday in Soledar, countering an earlier claim by Russia’s mercenary Wagner Group that it had taken control of the town in eastern Ukraine.
Hours after the Wagner Group claim, the Russian military said fighting was ongoing with Russian airborne units surrounding the town on the north and south.
A spokesman for Ukraine’s eastern military command told Ukrainian television that the situation in Soledar was “complicated.”
