Ukrainian army successfully shoots down entire Russian train in 1 minute, soldier reveals

According to a soldier who survived the attack, Ukraine’s armed forces successfully shot down an entire Russian military unit within a minute as part of their counteroffensive on the Eastern Front.

In a new video released by the Security Service of Ukraine (SSU) on Sunday, a Russian soldier, whose identity has not been released, said he was shocked by how Ukrainian forces destroyed his train within a minute. The soldier added that the attack resulted in the deaths of 20 of his comrades.

“We saw people who were normally armed and normally trained, every other person had a walkie-talkie, everyone had heaters, everyone had night vision goggles,” the soldier said in the video, describing the Ukrainian armed forces.

“They shot the whole train in 1 minute. 20 people died in 1 minute!”

The SSU determined that the soldier was part of a Russian train that arrived in the town of Millerovo near Russia’s border with Ukraine on September 13. He fought Kiev’s army for 12 days before surrendering to Ukraine on September 25.

SSU video comes as Kyiv continues to gain ground and push back Russian forces in a counteroffensive that began in late August. In the past week alone, around 776 square kilometers of territory in the eastern regions have been retaken from the Russians.

“In this week alone, our soldiers liberated 776 square kilometers of territory in the east of our country and 29 settlements, including six in the Luhansk region,” said Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in a speech published on his Telegram channel on Saturday.

Natalia Humeniuk, the spokeswoman for Ukraine’s Southern Military Command, also noted that Ukraine is making progress in the southern Kherson region, with the army having liberated a total of 1,170 square kilometers of territory since the counteroffensive began.

“Work on consolidation of territory, evacuation and implementation of stabilization operations continues, since the settlements we are entering contain many surprises left by the (Russian) occupiers,” Humeniuk said on Ukrainian national television, translated from Reuters.

In total, the Ukrainian army has liberated 2,434 square kilometers of land and 96 settlements from Russian occupation since the end of August.
