Ukrainian forces eliminate Russia’s Pskov paratrooper unit
Ukraine’s defense forces have liquidated a unit of Russia’s 76th Guards Air Assault Division.
That’s according to the Facebook page of the Ukrainian Airborne Assault Troops Command, Ukrinform reports.
“In one of their deployments, soldiers with the 80th Separate Air Assault Brigade of the Ukrainian Armed Forces have destroyed two combat vehicles and 14 occupiers with the Pskov-based 76th Guards Air Assault Division of the Russian armed forces,” the statement reads.
The Command stated that the ID of one of the killed invaders – Senior Lieutenant Roman Lokotkov – shows that he served with the 728th Separate Communications Battalion of the 76th Airborne Assault Division.
As Ukrinform reported, Lviv paratroopers shot down a Russian Sukhoi Su-25 jet fighter with an Igla missile system.
