The Ukrainian Ministry of Defense cleared the release of footage from an entire Ukrainian military combat operation that led to the capture of a village near Kharkiv from Russian troops.
The assault was filmed by a Ukrainian drone and ground troops wearing GoPros on their helmets and bodies.
This is the first time during the war an entire combat operation was documented so extensively from several angles.
According to the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense about 70 Russian soldiers were KIA and 27 got captured as POWs by Ukrainian troops.
Ukrainain forces also suffered several KIAs and WIAs during the battle but the exact number was not disclosed.
Due to restrictions we can not share the capturing of the POWs nor the treatment of a Ukrainian WIA. We hope you understand this.
Also a number of Russian vehicles were abandoned and captured by Ukrainian forces.
Ukrainian soldiers claim that a Russian Orion drone was present during the battle and circled above the area.
Based on the vehicles it seems the Ukrainians who assaulted the village were part of a volunteer militia such as AZOV but it has to be pointed out that they had relatively advanced gear with them.
A number of AK12 assault rifles with aimpoints and other sights could be seen for example.
