(NSFW) Chechen Infantryman Solos A Russian Trench, Bakhmut

This drone footage shows a Chechen fighter in Ukraine. While it's unknown why or whether backup is unavailable in this incident, he has evidently taken it upon himself to clear a Russian trench on his lonesome. The captions and unit patch, translated, posit that he is from the Lom (Lion) special tactical unit of the Sheikh Mansur Battalion. This battalion is made of Chechen diaspora, with its leader hailing from Norway. The casualties caused in this assault are in no way censored or obfuscated, and therefore viewer discretion is advised.


He stalks up to the trench, and opens fire, killing the most exposed Russian outright. It would appear that he gets a fix on the remaining Russians' positions as they fire over the lip of the trench, then rolls right and kills another from his new position just after the third flees into the dugout. Not only is he doing this by himself, but he's doing it on Hard Mode- no grenades. Before the video coverage ends, he appears to confirm kills on the downed Russians before firing into the dugout.
