The Vuhledar Trap: How Ukrainian Artillery Disintegrates Russian Tanks

It’s bad for Russia in Vuhledar. In a video that surfaced on social media, the Ukrainian army’s 72nd brigade hits two Russian tanks, destroying one, which it sets on fire, and damaging the other armored car. The city of Donetsk is one of the hot fronts in the east, where Moscow’s forces suffered heavy losses and had to retreat. In the three-week battle in the city, Russian forces lost at least 130 tanks, destroyed by mines, missiles and actions by Ukrainian soldiers. Vulhedar remained in Ukrainian hands and furthermore, according to sources, the Russian army would have made serious mistakes on the ground by exposing itself to that of Kiev which, taking advantage of the enemy’s unpreparedness, had the upper hand. A long and complex battle leads to Bakhmut, the epicenter of both armies’ efforts in the field.
