The drones had been eyeing up their targets from above as the men struggled to get back on their feet.

But after a few moments of surveying the situation, they honed in on their targets.

The Russian troops can be seen trying to make a last minute escape after clocking on to the incoming enemy – but it was already too late.

The chilling footage, which was taken on the frontlines near the city of Bakhmut in eastern Ukraine, was released by Ukrainian officials on Saturday.

A statement read: “A group of occupiers in the Bakhmut sector of the frontline came under the sight of the Black Raven pilots of the 93rd Separate Mechanised Brigade ‘Kholodnyi Yar’ of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

“With no other options to save their lives in the open, the Russian soldiers decided to take cover under the previously destroyed armoured personnel carrier, wait it out and continue their advance towards our positions. As a result, none of the group survived.”

It comes after one of Putin’s £1million T-72 tank’s was completely eviscerated by a Ukrainian suicide drone earlier this month.

Chilling footage showed the Russian tank making its way across the battlefield when it suddenly gets blown to smithereens.

In February, a valuable trove of Putin’s war weapons were blown up by just a handful of Kamikaze drones.

The Ukrainian military wreaked havoc on a Russian hanger, destroying the high-level equipment from Putin’s war chest.

Footage showed the deadly Kamikaze drone entering the hanger and hovering around what appeared to be the rare Russian BMPT “Terminator” tank before shredding it up into pieces.

It is supposed to be one of Russia’s most advanced weapons systems as Putin attempts to portray his armed forces as some of the strongest in the world.

Earlier that month, Ukraine destroyed a column of Russian tanks and armoured vehicles in a single blitz using drones and missiles.

Ukraine unleashed pin-point strikes on Putin’s convoy maneuvering near the frontline in Russian-held Donetsk region in a two-hour onslaught.

The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine has since reported Russia’s astonishing losses since the start of the war over two years ago.

Between February 24, 2022 and March 25, 2024, Russia had lost approximately 437,390 personnel, 6,887 tanks, 13,183 armoured combat vehicles and 10,877 artillery units.

There have also been damages to 1,018 multiple launch rocket systems, 726 air defence systems, 347 warplanes, 325 helicopters, 8,539 drones and 2,010 cruise missiles.

The AFU add that 14,454 motor vehicles and fuel tankers, 1,785 units of special equipment, 26 warships and one submarine have also been lost.

The eye-opening revelation represents further embarrassment for Putin in his failure to win the war.

Ukraine has also struck two Russian military ships stationed in Crimea, the Ukrainian military confirmed on Sunday.

The attack targeted the landing ships Yamal and Azov, along with a communications centre and other infrastructure belonging to the Black Sea fleet.

The incident, described as the most significant attack in recent months, reportedly resulted in one fatality and four injuries.

Poland has also demanded an explanation from Moscow after a Russian missile reportedly violated Polish airspace during an attack on Ukraine, putting Polish forces on high alert.

The Polish Foreign Ministry urged Russia to halt its air attacks on Ukraine, to end the war, and to address internal issues.

Ukraine is currently experiencing rolling blackouts after an underground gas storage site was targeted amid the ongoing missile strikes on power facilities.

Naftogaz, Ukraine’s state-run energy firm, confirmed the attack but assured that gas supplies to consumers remain unaffected as of Sunday.

The majority of Ukraine’s gas storage capacity, about 30 billion cubic metres, is located in the western region of the country.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has said that over 200,000 residents in Kharkiv, which is often hit by Russian attacks due to its proximity to the border, lack reliable power.

The network has been restored in other areas, but strict power schedules are in place in Kharkiv.

Rolling blackouts have also been announced in the port city of Odesa in southern Ukraine.

But reports claim Putin is “planning” a second mobilisation of 300,000 conscripts to besiege and capture Kharkhiv.

The warlord launched his biggest attack yet on Friday as an arsenal of 150 devastating weapons reigned terror across Ukraine.

A military report leaked in January detailed the Russian tyrant’s possible “path to conflict” – beginning last month and ending in 2025.

And it now appears Putin is sticking eerily close to that plan.
