Second failed attempt by Russia to cross the river: Ukraine destroys entire battalion. The Russians attempted to cross the Donbass on 8 May and lost the entire battalion. As they attempted to cross the river, the Ukrainians caught them among themselves and destroyed them all. Russia lost more people and the rest had to swim for their safety.
Putin’s soldiers try to save people and vehicles stranded on the banks of the Donets River. His first attempt was on May 8. And their pontoon bridge was sunk by artillery fire that could have killed more than 1,000 soldiers.
- But that mission just came out a while ago. We can see this sunken pontoon bridge through satellite imagery. According to the Ukrainian Investigative Agency, Russia lost 70 vehicles and 2 battalion teams were seen there.
According to Kyiv, Russia is missing out a lot these days and hasn’t been able to do anything big since last month. As we know, Russia failed to get Belokhorivka from Ukraine. Now they are trying to take it from the side of Severodonetsk on the way to street battles.
Since the Ukrainians destroyed the bridge, in this case they had to cross the river to reach Lisichansk. If the Russians manage to seize these two cities, they can declare the Luhansk region liberated from Ukrainian control.
But still they have to face great struggles and when it comes to crossing rivers by alternative means, such as swimming. There Putin can win this small victory and feel like a victor in this war in the Donbass. This small victory could push Putin to go further and try even more.
Despite some sort of peace agreement between the two, Russia has the power to win the race. But anything can still happen. Their satellite image has gone viral recently.
Ukraine vs Russia War
As everyone knows, there is a war between Russia and Ukraine. It started on February 24, 2022. Relations between the two countries have not been good since 2014 and this is a bilateral relationship between the two countries. And in February 2022, war was officially declared. And if Russia could start its war with a nuclear bomb, it would have to be World War III. As Putin always says, he will start dropping nuclear bombs on Ukraine.
