The International Legion, a special unit with foreigners serving in it, was involved in the defense of Chasiv Yar in Donbas.

The Defence Intelligence of Ukraine reported that their special unit was tasked with complicating the invaders’ advance.

“During the contact, the order is simple: do not allow the invaders to advance and kill everyone,” the Defense Intelligence said.

According to the video, the soldiers of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine are focused on eliminating enemy manpower and are conducting active combat operations in the area of Chasiv Yar.

The International Legion united volunteers from more than 50 countries who, after the full-scale invasion, came to the aid of Ukrainians and fought against Russian troops.

The International Legion unit started performing combat missions in March 2022.

It operates separately from the Ukrainian International Legion, under a different command structure, with different techniques, tactics, and procedures.

Chasiv Yar

The Russian military is constantly storming the positions of the Ukrainian Defense Forces with various types of weapons in the area of Chasiv Yar, Donetsk region.

In particular, the Russian invaders strike in this sector with thermobaric munitions and bombs.

Fighting is also almost constant near Klishchiyivka and Ivanivske, which are located near the town of Chasiv Yar in the Donetsk region. Russian invasion forces are trying to bypass the city from the south and northeast.

“The Siverskyi Donets-Donbas canal is no longer water, but this is a serious obstacle for armored vehicles. Even if something relatively light is traveling with servicemen, they have to stop in front of the canal and land the troops. And at this time, they are very vulnerable,” said the military.
