Machine Gunner Halts Russian Soldier's Advance

GoPro footage released to Telegram by an unknown volunteer fighter that sounds American or Canadian captures the moment a Russian Soldier gets caught out in the open by machine gun fire. While the original source of the footage stated that the machine gunner was a member of the international legion, that information has not been confirmed at this time.


First and foremost, I don't know the situation on the ground, so I'm not keen to Monday morning quarter back this dude. That said, while this is a solid display of fundamental machine gun gunnery, the Russian could have been part of a probing attack by the Russian forces to figure out the location of defensive machine gun emplacements at their position, but that is equally as unlikely from the caliber of troops that the Russians have been throwing into the fray against Ukrainian defenses lately.
