Soldiers of the Special Operations Forces (SSO) and the 72nd Separate Mechanized Brigade destroyed Russian equipment and captured two Russian servicemen.

This was reported by the press service of the SSO, having released the relevant video.

"As a result of joint actions, a modernized Russian T-80 tank was destroyed, even before it entered the firing position. During the battle, two members of the tank crew - contractors, marines of the Russian Federation - were captured," the message says.

The prisoners, who turned out to be brothers who served in the Russian army under a contract, were given qualified medical care and taken beyond the front line to the location of the Defense Forces of Ukraine.

"The joint operation of the SSO of Ukraine and the 72nd OMbr took place without losses on our side and disrupted the enemy's planned assault in the Ugledarsk direction," the SSO press service noted.
