Soldiers of the 55th, 59th, and 72nd Brigades, supported by adjacent units of the Ukrainian Defense Forces, halted a mechanized assault near Krasnohorivka, Donetsk region.

The Inquisition of the 59th Legion Telegram channel reported on this.

The published footage shows two enemy tanks and three infantry fighting vehicles; all Russian armored vehicles were protected by anti-drone “grills.”

It can be seen that the Russians used thermal smoke equipment to disguise their actions.

To stop the assault, the Ukrainian Defense Forces used FPV drones, a multicopter bomber, mines and artillery.

As a result of the fire damage, the Russian assault was stopped, and the Russian armored vehicles were destroyed or abandoned.

It is worth noting that fragments of the video show the use of FPV drones, which probably have the function of capturing a target.

Fighting in the Donetsk region

On June 8, 2024, Militarnyi reported that the Defense Forces defeated the armor of Russian assault men trying to break through to Verkhnokamianske, Donetsk region.

On one section of the road, the invaders lost two MT-LB armored personnel carriers, on one of which a turret from the BTR-70 and protective “grilles” were installed.

During the attack, the Russians also lost an armored vehicle BMP-1 and a “tank shed,” which they tried to protect with a mass of grilles from all sides.

On June 6, it was reported that the Russian armored group conducted an unsuccessful assault and suffered losses in the Bakhmut direction, near Andriivka.

However, the defense forces quickly detected the invaders’ armor and struck them preemptively.

The operation involved a unit from the 28th Separate Mechanized Brigade and the ‘Phoenix’ rapid response border detachment.
