Russian battalion loses armoured vehicles in failed river crossing

BBC, 14 May 2022
A Russian battalion has lost almost all of its armoured vehicles in a failed attempt to cross a river in eastern Ukraine, the UK Ministry of Defence has said.

Images from the scene show dozens of burnt-out tanks after Ukrainian forces shelled pontoon bridges across the Siversky Donets river in the Luhansk region.

It’s thought almost an entire battalion of vehicles was lost - it’s not known how many men were killed.

However, Russian forces appear to be making gains elsewhere in the area, with reports that they have taken the nearby town of Rubizhne.
