Artillery destroyed a unit of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on an infantry fighting vehicle, which tried to cross the pontoon crossing over the Seversky Donets River. The footage of the destruction of the crossing was shown by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.
An attempt to cross the river by the Ukrainian military was noticed by the drone crew of a motorized rifle unit of the RF Armed Forces. The Russian military corrected artillery fire at the crossing and armored vehicles of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which were hiding in the forest.
Artillerymen with their fire completely destroyed the pontoon ferry, after which it sank. The enemy armored vehicles that managed to cross over during the battle were destroyed by artillery fire and the crews of infantry fighting vehicles that entered the battle. Part of the Ukrainian armored vehicles was captured.
In addition, Ukrainian armored vehicles and equipment of the pontoon-bridge unit were destroyed on the opposite bank during an attempt to retreat.
