Ukrainian Boats Run Artillery Gauntlet To Land Troops in Krynky

This drone footage shows Ukrainian riverine operations as they brave the Dnipro in rubber boats to deposit troops on the Russian side. To say these landings are contested is an understatement- a large amount of Russian artillery is shown slamming into the river, on top of and around the Ukrainian watercraft.


The boats and their crews take fire all the way down and across the river, and even as the soldiers disembark on the far bank. Fighting for the Krynky region has gone on for so long that every inch of the area is probably zeroed, making any opportunity to cross far from certain success. Indeed, several of the boats and crews take direct hits. However, by continuing to maintain a presence in Krynky, the Ukrainian Marines are keeping large amounts of Russian ordinance and personnel tied down.
