GoPro: Ukrainian Water Run on the Frontline

Tense GoPro footage released by Ukrainian Soldiers shows a daily routine of moving water between fighting positions. The Soldiers have to cross a number of open areas through their own destroyed vehicles in order to do what is essentially a daily essential task.


This isn't the sexy side of combat, but its a stark reminder that the Ukrainians are fighting an entirely different kind of war than what the world has come to know over the previous twenty years during the Global War on Terror and recent combat operations in Syria. The Ukrainians don't enjoy open supply lines and total air dominance. Instead, they run through the open carrying cases of water as artillery sounds in the distance hoping that an FPV drone from the Russian side of the near static lines doesn't come crashing down into them.
