Close Range Gunfight for Fighting Position

Ukrainian infantry close with and engage the Russian occupants of a fighting position at close range, location in Donetsk. The two Ukrainian troops advance into heavy fire, engaging with small arms and grenades, and find cover on the edge of the Russian fighting position. The leading Ukrainian soldier drops but stays in the fight and finds some defilade. The ensuing tussle for dominance plays out at spitting distance. During the video some captions appear on the screen, but my high school German classes from three decades ago leave me ill-equipped to translate, so any readers who can read Ukrainian are invited to share in the comments. The video ends with the two Ukrainian soldiers in possession of the trench.
