User Blake Allen (@Blake_Allen13) said: "If Ukraine can start tracking down & hitting Russian Railway troops/bases that may be one of the most impactful ways to further degrade Russian logistics.

"The railways troops are just unbelievably important to everything behind-the-lines."

Ukraine’s advisor to the Ministry of Internal Affairs Anton Gerashchenko took to Facebook to confirm the event.

"On the night of Friday to Saturday, a high-precision HIMARS strike destroyed the railway echelon of more than 40 wagons that arrived from Crimea with manpower, equipment and ammunition at the railway station of Brilevka, Kherson region,” he said.

"As a result, the living force turned into coal, the equipment into piles of scrap metal, and BC took off. The loss of life force ranged about 80-200x and 200-300s."
