Andriyivka is the scene of a shocking incident: Russia opened fire on its own troops who wanted to surrender. As Ukraine regains ground, an explosive video emerges showing the moment of the shelling.
In a recent and disturbing incident in Ukraine, Russia opened fire on its own troops as they attempted to surrender. As Mirror reports, this took place in the village of Andriyivka, just a few kilometers south of the Russian-occupied town of Bakhmut. Ukrainian forces successfully recaptured the village by surrounding and destroying the Russian garrison in a swift action.
According to information from Mirror, a video was published on Telegram showing the moment when Russian soldiers were supposed to surrender to Ukrainian troops. However, unexpectedly there was an explosion. According to Mirror’s analysis, this may have been due to an order from within the ranks to fire on their own men when it became clear that many of them would surrender.
Ukraine’s steady advance despite intense fighting for Bakhmut
Andriyivka’s recapture was eventually confirmed by the General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, although there was previous disagreement over this victory. The fighting for Bakhmut was described by Mirror as some of the most intense of this war. The Ukrainian armed forces have steadily gained ground in recent months since Russian troops occupied Bakhmut in May.
As fighting continues, Ukrainian troops have also made significant progress in the south, seen as a crucial step toward potentially cutting off the land corridor to the Crimean peninsula, which was taken over from Russia in 2014.
