UKR Humvee Crew Has Extremely Close Call In Urban Fight For Krasnohorivka

This footage, provided by a Ukrainian drone operator, shows the 109th Territorial Defense Brigade engaged in heavy fighting in Krasnohorivka, Donetsk Oblast.


This incident has been geolocated at 47.992347, 37.520496. The Ukrainians are shown taking heavy fire from the first and second floors of Russian-held buildings as the Humvees' .50 turret gunners suppress. The dismounts work their way to the windows of the buildings, firing in and throwing what appear to be satchel charges. At 0:48 - 0:50, the soldiers leave via the Humvees. However, at 0:53, a massive explosive rocks the area- potentially one of the satchel charges left behind. The fate of the trailing vehicle is initially obscured, but the observation drone tracks both Humvees leaving the area, the second crew having survived by the skin of their teeth.
