“The video, showing two American HMMWVs (HAMVI), was made at the place where our jeeps fell into the trenches near the checkpoint,” he told the Russian Spring Telegram channel.
According to him, the militants had to quickly leave the stuck equipment.
“The flimsy log walkways couldn’t support heavy equipment,” he admitted.
Recall that on May 22, a regime of anti-terrorist operations was introduced in the Belgorod region for one day – a sabotage group entered the region from the territory of Ukraine, which was blocked and destroyed. 13 civilians were injured, 35 houses and administrative buildings, several cars were damaged.
With air strikes, artillery fire, and active actions by units covering the state border of the Western Military District, the DRG members were blocked and defeated. According to Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, more than 70 Ukrainian terrorists were killed, as well as vehicles and armored vehicles. The saboteurs left US weapons and equipment at the scene.
