(NSFW) Ukrainian Soldiers Clear Out Holed-Up Russian in Bakhmut

This drone footage depicts two Ukranian soldiers clearing a Russian from a cutout in a trench, in Bakhmut, Ukraine- No audio.


There are two Russian soldiers on the left, although the one furthest left appears to already be deceased. The Ukrainian soldiers on the right will clear the remaining Russian from the cutout in the trench wall. The right-most Ukrainian retrieves a grenade at 0:25 seconds and moves forward to throw. However, his throw lands the grenade to his right (behind/left from the Russian's perspective), and outside of the trench. As the grenade explodes the other Ukrainian begins firing at the Russian, but the Russian survives both attacks.


At 0:52, the Ukranian who had been shooting moves forward to press the Russian's position, firing around and into the corner of the Russian cut-out at least 10 times. The grenadier, whether out of a sense of finality or a need to redeem himself, throws another grenade at 01:18, this time using an overhand technique that puts it where it needs to go, rather than winging it to the right as before. The incident is punctuated by the grenade, although the Russian in the hole was very likely already dead.
