Ukrainians Mount Hilltop Defense Near Siverskyi Donets

GoPro footage released by Ukrainian forces captures the hilltop defense of a position near Siverskyi Donets in the Bilohorivka region. From the translation, it sounds like the Ukrainians are battling against Russian armor.


In a rough translation of this footage, it become apparent that the unit machine gunner is trying to mark several Russian tanks with tracer fire so that the RPG gunner can get a round off onto the tank's position. It's unclear if the RPG gunner scores a hit, because it sounds like their view of enemy forces are pretty obscured by both the terrain and weather.


At another point in the video, the Ukrainians can be heard calling for a Stugna-P to be moved up to their position, and they learn that the weapon system is out of commission.
