Ukrainian paratroopers defeated a Russian armored group near Heorhiivka in the Donetsk region and took prisoners.

The 46th Airmobile Brigade announced that they successfully neutralized all the Russian equipment that had been deployed by the Russian command for the assault.

“All the vehicles that were moving to the position of the 46th Airmobile Brigade immediately became scrap metal. Not a single one escaped,” said the paratroopers.

Three tanks, one MT-LB armored personnel carrier, and one infantry fighting vehicle remained on the battlefield.

The Russians hung all the armored vehicles with protective grilles that were supposed to stop attack drones.

However, it was the paratroopers’ FPV drones that became the weapon that defeated Russian armored vehicles.

The tanks were also fitted with KMT-6 rolling trawls to pass through Ukrainian minefields.

The principle of the trawl is based on pushing mines out of the ground and throwing them beyond the projection of the tracks.

Eight invaders were killed and 14 others were wounded by the assault platoon. Some fled the battlefield.

Four Russian soldiers decided to surrender to Ukrainian paratroopers.

“Four invaders became rational, voluntarily became our POWs and replenished the exchange pool of the Ukrainian Defense Forces,” the paratroopers said.

Heorhiivka is located to the west of Mariinka. The road to Kurakhove, one of the key defense centers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Donetsk region, runs through this village. This is not the first attempt by the invaders to break through near this settlement. Back in early June, paratroopers stopped attacks by Russian armored groups in the direction of Heorhiivka.
