Ukrainian Special Forces Drop Drone Bombs On Russian Soldiers Huddling In Foxholes

These images show Ukrainian special forces dropping drone bombs on Russian soldiers huddling in foxholes on the frontlines.

The images begin with a Russian soldier apparently being injured by a drone bomb before the footage shows a group of Russian soldiers huddled in a foxhole being hit by another drone bomb.

A Russian soldier can be seen trying to scramble to safety as another bomb hits. It lands just next to him and appears to injure him.

A sole Russian soldier can then be seen making himself small in the foxhole before a drone grenade appears to land right next to him, detonating under him in a cloud of black smoke.

The Ukrainian special forces drone then drops a bomb right into the entrance to what appears to be a Russian dugout.

It explodes, causing smoke to rise out of the dugout.

The images then show other Russian soldiers on the frontlines being targeted by drones, with some trying to run to safety.

A large explosion occurs as a group of soldiers can be seen running in a line in a field. At least one of them appears to be hit, with the rest ducking for cover.

The footage ends with a drone bomb hitting what appears to be a piece of Russian ammunition, causing a large explosion.

The images were obtained from the Command of the Special Operations Forces (SSO) of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on Monday, 28th November, along with a statement saying: “Expert destruction of enemy infantry.

“Operators of the SSO of Ukraine are constantly hunting the enemy in the positions occupied by him not only with the help of ‘classical’ means of firepower but also using UAVs.

“As you can see in the video, attempts to wait out the shelling in shelters do not help the Russians. Punishment comes from heaven to anyone who encroaches on the will of Ukrainians.”

Russia invaded Ukraine on 24th February in what the Kremlin is still calling a “special military operation”. Today marks the 278th day of the war.

The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported that between 24th February and 28th November, Russia had lost about 87,900 personnel, 2,908 tanks, 5,861 armoured combat vehicles, 1,899 artillery units, 395 multiple launch rocket systems, 209 air defence systems, 278 warplanes, 261 helicopters, 1,555 drones, 531 cruise missiles, 16 warships, 4,416 motor vehicles and fuel tankers, and 163 units of special equipment.

Russia has claimed that its casualties have been much lower but provides infrequent updates on its latest figures.

Petro Kotin, the head of Energoatom, the Ukrainian state nuclear power plant operator, has said that there are signs that the Russian forces could be preparing to abandon the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant.

Kotin said: “In recent weeks we are effectively receiving information that signs have appeared that they are possibly preparing to leave.”

He added: “One gets the impression they’re packing their bags and stealing everything they can.”

Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky has said that Russia is planning to launch fresh missile attacks.

Zelensky said on Sunday evening: “We understand that terrorists are preparing new strikes. We know that for sure. And as long as they have missiles, they won’t stop, unfortunately.”

Hundreds of Ukrainians have reportedly left the city of Kherson in southern Ukraine after Russian shelling intensified on Sunday.

Evacuations from the city began last week amid fears that there was a lack of electricity, water and heating.

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak is reportedly set to promise to maintain or increase military aid to Ukraine in 2023, according to an extract from a speech he is set to give today.

The Prime Minister will reportedly say: “We will stand with Ukraine for as long as it takes. We will maintain or increase our military aid next year. And we will provide new support for air defence.”

The authorities in Ukraine are slowly restoring power across the country, but millions are still said to be doing without heat or electricity after Russia’s heaviest missile strikes so far in the war.

Zelensky said: “We have been restoring electricity generation and supply day after day.”

He added: “As of today, in most regions of the country, only stabilisation schedules of shutdowns are in effect.”

The Ministry of Defence of the United Kingdom has said that Russia is currently hitting Ukraine with ageing cruise missiles that have been stripped of their nuclear warheads because Russia’s stocks are so depleted.

The UK MoD added that the move by the Russian side was “unlikely to achieve reliable effects”.
