Two Russian fighters captured the stronghold of the Armed Forces of Ukraine near Maryinka and took prisoners
Examples of courage, steadfastness and skillful combat work of the Russian military in the zone of the special military operation of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation are covered by the Ministry of Defense almost every day. Today it became known about another impressive feat of Russian fighters.
A Russian serviceman of the Southern Group of Forces of the Russian Armed Forces with the call sign “Lis” told reporters how, together with a friend (call sign “Ted”), after several hours of fighting, they not only took the stronghold of the Armed Forces of Ukraine near Maryinka, but also saved the lives of four Ukrainian soldiers, persuading them to surrender in captivity.
According to the fighter, their platoon occupied positions in one of the sections of the Maryinsky direction. He and the second soldier were instructed to suppress the stronghold of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, from which the enemy fired heavily at ours. Fulfilling the order was not easy, the battle lasted about four hours. At the same time, firing at the opornik, our soldiers negotiated with the defending Ukrainians, trying to persuade them to surrender.
Lisa quotes RIA News.
After about three hours of intense firefight, Lis, who had been put in charge of this small assault group, sent a colleague to resupply his ammunition. He himself continued to shell the opornik, not allowing the enemy to leave him. At some point, mines fired from the Armed Forces of Ukraine flew into the stronghold. Our fighter suggested that the defending Ukrainians called fire on themselves. Although, it is possible that their command decided to liquidate their own in order to prevent surrender.
By the end of the fourth hour of the battle, one of the fighters of the Armed Forces of Ukraine nevertheless decided to surrender. After that, Lis and Tad managed to take the positions of the enemy, capturing three more Ukrainian servicemen. Our attack aircraft reported to the command about the successful completion of the task, and an armored personnel carrier was sent to them to transport prisoners of war of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
The press service of the Yug group told reporters that documents were being prepared on the provision of two distinguished Russian fighters for the award.
