Ukrainian Kamikaze Drone Hits Russian War Machine Despite Soldiers Trying To Shoot It Down

These images show Ukrainian kamikaze drones hitting Russian war machines on the battlefields of eastern Ukraine.

The footage begins by showing a kamikaze drone honing in on its target and hitting it despite Russian soldiers attempting to shoot it down.

The video then shows a number of other drones hitting Russian war machines in large explosions.

The images were obtained from the 53rd Separate Mechanized Brigade named after Prince Volodymyr Monomakh of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on Monday, 20th November, along with a statement saying: “Ukrainian FPV drones are a death sentence for Russian invaders. All our rage is converted into one accurate blow, which does not give the occupier a chance to realize his bloody plans.

“For your attention, a vivid selection of the results of the work of the Cossacks from the shock company of the BpAK 53 Ombre named after Prince Volodymyr Monomakh.

“Each flight is the skill of warriors and the precision of a full-fledged combat unit. In total, one flight gives: as a maximum – irreversible loss of manpower and equipment, as a minimum – injuries, panic, and lowering the fighting spirit of the enemy.

“Strength to our defenders!

“We do not stop and we all work together for Victory!”

Russia invaded Ukraine on 24th February 2022 in what the Kremlin is still calling a “special military operation”. Today marks the 635th day of the full-scale war.

The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported that between 24th February 2022 and 20th November 2023, Russia had lost about 319,210 personnel, 5,439 tanks, 10,168 armoured combat vehicles, 7,748 artillery units, 899 multiple launch rocket systems, 588 air defence systems, 323 warplanes, 324 helicopters, 5,764 drones, 1,563 cruise missiles, 22 warships, 1 submarine, 10,127 motor vehicles and fuel tankers, and 1,097 units of special equipment.

Russia has claimed that its casualties have been much lower but provides infrequent updates on its latest figures.

The Ukrainian army has said that it has pushed Russian forces “three to eight kilometres” from the banks of the Dnipro River in southern Ukraine.

If confirmed, it would be the most significant advance by Ukraine’s forces in months.

Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky has dismissed the command of his military’s medical forces, Major General Tetiana Ostashchenko.

Zelensky said following a meeting with Defence Minister Rustem Umerov that “new priorities had been set”.

He also said: “There is little time left to wait for results. Quick action is needed for forthcoming changes.”

The Ukrainian authorities have said that about 3,000 lorries, including vehicles carrying fuel and humanitarian aid, were stuck at the Polish border on Sunday due to a blockade by Polish truckers that has lasted over 10 days.

Polish truckers are protesting what they see as inaction from their government over a loss of business to foreign competitors since the beginning of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022.

The Mayor of Moscow, Sergei Sobyanin, said that air defence units in the Russian capital intercepted a drone targeting the city late on Sunday evening.

The Ukrainian military has said that it shot down 15 out of 20 Iranian-made Shahed drones launched by Russia and targeting the Ukrainian capital Kyiv and the Cherkasy and Poltava region on the night of Saturday to Sunday.
