Ukraine’s military forces targeted a group of Russian soldiers with a precision artillery system. Ukraine’s forces used Stugna-P anti-tank guided missiles in order to successfully aim at the group of Russian troops. There have been recent calls for countries in the West to send Ukraine more weapons. And a Ukrainian MP has set up a crowdfunding page in order to raise funds for a self-propelled Howitzer.

The video shows the Ukrainian military locating and targeting a group of Russian troops.

Once locked on the target, the Ukrainian forces begin to pummel the Russian army using heavy artillery.

Once struck the Russian servicemen appear to jump from the armoured vehicle and begin to run.

And a large cloud of thick grey smoke erupts from the vehicle, and Russian soldiers escape to safety.

Users on social media have been reacting to the video.

@NickBolton18 said: “Whose the king of the castle, now then?”

@PJSheridan commented: “Nice shot.”

@Traderh8s added: “RPGs are the only anti-tank weapons Ukraine has left and they’re going to lose the war. That’s the fact Ukraine must admit. East Ukraine and Crimea are gone. War is going to end soon.”

Ukrainian MP Oleksi Goncharenko launched a crowdfunding appeal, in order to purchase a self-propelled Howitzer artillery piece, a price of valuable kit which costs £235,000.

Mr Goncharenko told Express.co.uk: “It’s been so heart-warming to see so much support for Ukraine from across the world.

“We are proud to fight at the frontline to defend freedom in Europe but we just need the weapons.

“Every pound donated for this howitzer will help to save Ukrainian lives and to achieve victory faster from which the whole world will benefit.”
