Ukrainian defenders have effectively destroyed a Russian heavy flamethrower system Solntsepek at the front. The soldiers showed a video of their combat work, according to the Ground Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

The published footage shows the work of the soldiers of the 72nd separate mechanized brigade named after the Black Cossacks, as well as soldiers from the 74th separate reconnaissance battalion.

The defenders, working in close cooperation, discovered the occupiers' equipment, which the Russians were trying to hide near the landing. After that, the Ukrainian military struck.

Specialized military publications note that the Ukrainian Armed Forces destroyed the TOS-1A Solntsepek using FPV drones. The enemy's equipment exploded and then burned to the ground.

Situation at the front

At present, the Ukrainian military's offensive is focused on two frontline areas - Bakhmut and Melitopol. The Ukrainian Armed Forces are attacking south of Bakhmut and, according to the General Staff, are conducting an offensive in the Zaporizhzhia region.

Heavy fighting continues near Avdiivka, which the Russians want to surround and capture, in the area of Maryinka and Bakhmut. The Russian army is trying to regain lost ground.
