An extraordinary event took place in Bakhmut, the scene of the fiercest clashes in the war between Ukraine and Russia. The Russian soldier surrendered to Ukrainian drones and escaped from fighting for Putin!
While the Ukrainian army continues its preparations for the big offensive, the war in Bakhmut is getting fiercer daily! The battle between Ukraine and Russia is escalating in Bakhmut! More than 100,000 Russian soldiers have died so far in Bakhmut, which has become a vital point of the war! In Bakhmut, which is in a very strategic location, Russian invaders have increased their troop deployment and attacks. More and more Russian soldiers are arriving in the region every day.
The majority of Russian soldiers are not fighting voluntarily on Ukrainian territory. Many of them are recruited due to Putin’s repressive laws. Russian soldiers in various parts of the country are often deceived under the name of exercises and brought to the front line. Russian soldiers, who no longer believe Putin’s lies, are looking for an opportunity to surrender to the Ukrainian army.
There was an extraordinary event in Bakhmut regarding the surrender of Russian soldiers. Ukrainian drones detected a Russian soldier alone on the front line. Knowing that fighting the Russian army is worse than dying, the Russian soldier asked Ukrainian drones to kill him. Ukrainian soldiers sent a note to the drone and called on the Russian soldier to surrender. Accepting this, the Russian soldier followed the drone and escaped from the Russian fronts.
Yurii Fedorenko, Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle (UCAV) Company Commander of the 92nd Separate Mechanised Brigade named after Ivan Sirko, shared footage of the incident on his social media account. Fedorenko said:
“Bakhmut: a charitable act from the Armed Forces of Ukraine on May 9. The UCAV squad detected a Russian soldier, who asked not to bomb him. Our team dropped him a note with a request to surrender and follow a drone. He agreed, although his ‘fellows’ were firing at his back,”
Despite the shelling by the Russian occupiers, the Russian soldier managed to reach Ukrainian positions.
“Being captured in Ukraine gives a better chance of survival than serving in the Russian army,” Fedorenko said.
