MOMENT Russian paratroopers 'take out Ukrainian targets' in propaganda video.

The Russian Ministry of Defence titled the video: 'Combat work of the Airborne Forces unit during the special military operation'.

Zvezda, a Russian state-owned nationwide TV network run by the Russian MoD, said (in Russian): "The Russian Defence Ministry has published footage of the combat work of a unit of the Airborne Forces during the special military operation to protect the republics of Donbass.

"The personnel of the anti-tank unit of the Airborne Forces advanced to a given area and destroyed the firing points of the stronghold of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The paratroopers suppressed the firing points with fire from anti-tank guided weapons, portable missile systems, grenade launchers and small arms."

Russia invaded Ukraine on 24th February in what the Kremlin is now calling a "special military operation" to "protect Donbass". The invasion is now in its 77th day.
