Drone Taunts Russian Troops Before Dropping Grenades

Interesting video shows an event in which a Ukrainian quadcopter drone approaches a Russian fighting position from near ground level which surprises and confuses multiple Russian soldiers. After figuring out the drone is a threat, they rapidly pile into a trench bunker, and the drone starts dropping F1 hand grenades into the position.


It appears the after several months of losses to drone dropped munitions, the Russians are finally adapting their procedures and covering fighting positions with overhead cover and concealment. While the grenades seem to have penetrated the overhead structure, the viewer is unable to determine of any casualties were inflicted.
