Russian troops run for their lives amid Ukrainian shelling.

Russian troops run for their lives abandoning their equipment and flee on foot after an artillery strike devastated their hidden position, say Ukrainian military leaders.

Video of the attack shows Russian troops and armour dug into what looks to be a natural escarpment in the landscape.

But within a few minutes, the position is turned to smoke and fire as the Russian troops abandon their military hardware to escape the bombardment.

Several soldiers can be seen running as fire rages in the camp behind them.

Trucks and armoured vehicles can be seen apparently abandoned in the scramble to escape.

And plumes of smoke can be seen belching from the position as the shells rain down on the positions.

Newsflash obtained the video from the 28th Separate Mechanised Brigade named after the Knights of the First Winter Campaign on Sunday, 15th May 2022.

The brigade said: "This is how such a striking solo was 'played' by our knightly artillery on the identified enemy positions.

"The racists were so impressed by such masterful execution that they fled faster than their ACS Hosta [self-propelled artillery] burned and detonated ammunition."

The brigade, which is a formation of the Ukrainian Ground Forces, did not reveal where in Ukraine the footage was filmed.
