Dramatic footage shows Vladimir Putin’s troops running for their lives as a bomb falls to the ground, causing a massive explosion.
A thermal imaging camera mounted on a small drone captures the moment a group of Russian soldiers desperately try to hide as a bomb crashes to the ground, emitting a huge cloud of smoke.
The bomb hits the ground, followed by more bombs falling as the shells fall to the ground.
This is because Ukraine uses deadly “kamikaze” switchblade drones capable of hovering over a Russian tank for 40 minutes before striking at 185 km/h.
The Defense Ministry said in an assessment update that Russia appears to have switched to launching dozens of 1960s-era missiles intended for use against aircraft carriers to attack ground targets instead.
It said Russia is likely to resort to “such inefficient weapon systems” because it is running out of “more accurate modern missiles,” while Ukraine’s air defenses are still preventing its tactical planes from conducting attacks across much of the country.
However, a military report by The Independent showed that for every piece of artillery that Ukraine has, Russia has 20 and Russia has 40 times as much artillery ammunition.
The war is now primarily an artillery battle, and Ukrainian officials have urged Washington and other Western powers to fulfill their promises by sending more and better weapons.
“This is artillery warfare now,” Vadym Skibitsky, deputy head of Ukraine’s military intelligence service, told The Guardian.
He continued: “Everything now depends on what (the West) gives us. Ukraine has one artillery piece versus 10-15 Russian artillery pieces.”
Amnesty has accused Putin and his army of committing war crimes in the northeast Ukrainian city of Kharkiv, as they use banned cluster bombs and carry out indiscriminate attacks that have killed hundreds of civilians.
The human rights group found evidence that Russian forces repeatedly used internationally banned weapons such as 9N210/9N235 cluster munitions and cluster mines.
The report said: “The people of Kharkiv have faced a relentless barrage of indiscriminate attacks in recent months, killing and injuring hundreds of civilians.
“The repeated use of widely banned cluster munitions is shocking and another indication of the utter disregard for civilian life. The Russian forces responsible for these horrific attacks must be held accountable for their actions and the victims and their families must receive full reparations.”
