Ukrainian Soldiers Fighting in Bakhmut Narrowly Avoid Drone

This helmet-cam footage shows the perspective of a Ukrainian soldier fighting as part of a squad in the remnants of a settlement. This takes place somewhere in the Bakhmut region. The squad works together to push into the small, dilapidated buildings, pumping a grenade into one of them at 01:22. At 01:52, the mechanical whirr of a Russian drone can be heard before it detonates nearby. After the explosion, they return to clearing the structures.
