Welcome to Lena News! A Russian soldier was targeted in a trench he dug for cover from Ukrainian strikes, but things didn’t go according to plan.
Something flew into the hole, and a Ukrainian drone dropped a shell on him, resulting in his death at the scene.
On the other side, Russian President Vladimir Putin launched his “special military operation” against Ukraine on February 24, 2022.
While the Kremlin initially aimed for a quick military victory, Ukraine responded with stronger-than-expected defensive efforts, bolstered by Western military aid, weakening Russian gains.
After more than a year of conflict, Russia is still struggling to make progress, with fighting continuing in eastern Ukraine.
Following Ukraine’s counterattack last fall, which saw them retake thousands of square miles of previously occupied territory, Russia began launching missile strikes against Ukrainian civilian areas and vital infrastructure, including energy facilities, in an attempt to add pressure to force Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to agree to end the war.
