Russian Proxy Assault Team Chewed Up In Ukrainian Crossfire

Published 1 years ago

An intense video from Donbass, early in the Ukraine War (September 2014), shows an assault element of Russia's Novorussia proxy forces attempting to overrun a Ukrainian military checkpoint and being forced to retreat when they find themselves in a deadly accurate crossfire.


Since we don't have to battle plans for this operation, it's not clear why these militants decided pushing a mostly-dismounted unit up a narrow choke point would be fruitful. It's possible they underestimated the size and breadth of the defending Ukrainian opposition elements.


As they first begin to maneuver, they suppress the left side of the road and then appear surprised when they begin taking automatic small arms fore from the right side. They go prone and find what little cover is available. Multiple casualties can be seen through the footage.
