The war in Ukraine just won’t end.
What side has the upper hand?
One thing is clear: Social media can provide a guide on what is happening on the ground like no other in history. Here is what we are seeing.
The video, which was reportedly recorded in Vuhledar back in February, depicts a Ukrainian drone dropping bombs on Russian tanks and taking out more than 30, according to estimations from the Russian side.
The Ukraine footage was shared by The Sun, a British newspaper and online news outlet.
In the video, Russian troops can be seen fleeing their vehicles as they come under attack from the Ukrainians.
In another part of the clip, the tanks can be seen desperately attempting to flee the scene, while one broken-down tank appears to get a jump start from a tank to its rear.
The tank ultimately fails to restart, and the soldiers can be seen fleeing the tank moments before another Ukrainian strike.
Towards the end of the video, more tanks can be seen getting hit by Ukrainian fire, with the tanks creating pillars of white smoke that rise hundreds of feet in to the air.
“Russian troops are seen in aerial footage fleeing under sustained aerial bombardment by the Ukrainians,” The Sun notes.
“One Russian estimate was that Vladimir Putin’s forces had lost 31 armoured vehicles in the carnage at Vuhledar, known to the Russians as Ugledar.”
