Russian unit hiding in trees destroyed by Ukrainian artillery strike.

A Russian military unit was reportedly destroyed by Ukrainian artillery after it was found hiding in the only cover for miles.

The Russian armour and troops had been holed up on a line of trees surrounded by fields on all sides.

So when a Ukrainian drone came looking for targets, the Russians looked to be sitting ducks.

Video footage of the strike shows that within seconds a furious fusillade hammered down on the line of vehicles and men.

At one point a vehicle blew itself to pieces as the ammunition it was carrying apparently exploded.

The 28th Mechanised Brigade, named after the Knights of the First Winter Campaign, a formation of the Ukrainian Ground Forces, boasted that their “eyes are everywhere” and they are able to take out the enemy from any position.

The Ukrainian brigade stated on 11th May: “Trying to hide from our knights, the occupiers forgot two truths: our eyes are everywhere, and our weapons will get them even from the ground.”
