A soldier of the recently created Russian 164th Separate Mechanized Rifle Brigade (Sergey Lezhnev) shared several photos of a Russian supply point on Telegram. One of the photos also showed a roadside gas station, so the Ukrainian response to the photos uploaded on November 15 came the same day.
By the way, Sergej’s Telegram channel reveals that the soldier regularly shared photos of his deployments. One of the pictures also shows a BMPT Terminator, which is held in high esteem throughout the Russian army.
In the past, it has happened several times that the soldiers of the Russian army uploaded footage from easily identifiable and geolocated locations to social media, thus playing into the hands of the Ukrainian artillery.
This happened no differently this time either, because in the next video you can already see that the nearby gas station was hit. However, it also seems that the Ukrainian artillery (now) missed the target and the Russian troops present hastily fled the scene.
