Quote: “The way the marine engineers from the 36th Separate Marine Brigade named after Rear Admiral Mykhailo Bilynsky together with their fellow soldiers breach the Russians’ mine defences is a real art.

Even under direct fire from anti-tank weapons, they managed to launch a tonne of plastic explosive in front of the front line of the Russian defence in order to break the Russians down into atoms.”

Details: The video shows live combat action on Russian positions in a forest.

The military posts footage from the frontline with a certain delay as is required by security protocols.

Background: In July, The Washington Post reported that Ukraine’s counter-offensive is progressing slowly, as the areas in front of Russian defensive fortifications are densely mined. On the eve of the counter-offensive, Ukraine had received less than 15% of the bomb disposal and engineering equipment it had requested from its Western partners.
