Drone Harasses Russian Trench And Drops A Grenade

The Ukrainian 30th Mechanized Brigade uses a quadcopter drone to harass and collect realtime intelligence on a densely-manned Russian trench system near Bakhmut. The Russian troops can be seen frantically firing at Ukrainian ground troops as up at the drone.


One of the Russian rifle rounds appearsto graze or make a less than critical hit on the drone jolting it, but not knocking it out of the sky. However, the Ukrainian drone operator acknowledges the threat to the equipment and rapidly relocates the drone to a higher altitude and drops a grenade.


The grenade lands in the trench right next to a Russian soldier and explodes. At least one of the Russian troops appears to have been significantly wounded by the blast.
