WATCH Russian soldier storm Ukrainian trench

POV footage obtained by RT shows intense close-quarters combat
WATCH Russian soldier storm Ukrainian trench

Bodycam footage obtained by RT shows a Russian soldier storming Ukrainian positions and clearing trenches. The video was filmed by the serviceman himself. 

The clip starts with the soldier entering a trench and firing an assault rifle. The man throws a grenade and a bang and a muffled scream are heard in the background. 

The soldier enters a dugout, where three bodies are lying on the ground next to ammunition crates and an anti-tank weapon. 

According to RT Russian, a Swedish-British NLAW anti-armor guided missile system and a Swedish AT-4 grenade launcher were found in the trench by Russian troops. The exact date and location where the footage was filmed has not been confirmed.

A dead soldier seen in the video was armed with a US-made assault rifle and was wearing a uniform with the patch of Norway’s Telemark Battalion, RT Russian said. The soldier’s nationality is unclear, however, as some Ukrainian online shops sell patches modeled after those worn by foreign armies.

Like many NATO countries, Norway has donated weapons and equipment to Ukraine, as well as providing training. According to Russian Defense Ministry estimates, 13,400 foreign mercenaries have joined the Ukrainian military and nearly 6,000 of them have been killed. 

Recent weeks have been marked by intense fighting in Donbass, as well as Ukraine’s Kharkov Region, where Russian troops have seized several villages along the border.
