In the area of the city of Vugledar, a Russian convoy of equipment was defeated, consisting of more than 30 tanks, infantry fighting vehicles and MT-LB. Ukrainian channels and the Gray Zone channel associated with PMC Wagner write about this. The information is confirmed by OSINT researchers, as well as the former commander of the DPR troops Igor Strelkov.
We are talking about the 155th Marine Brigade of the Pacific Fleet:
The information is also confirmed by Western OSINT researchers, in particular, Rob Lee writes about 31 destroyed armored vehicles, including about 15 tanks (including T-72B3 and T-80BVM):
The former commander of the DPR troops, Igor Strelkov (Girkin), commenting on the Russian defeat near Vugledar, called the Russian generals “complete cretins:
“It seems that all the events of the past year passed by our generals. However, since some of them are (at least from the moment they entered military schools) complete cretins, all the mistakes that were made before were exemplarily repeated. <...> Part of the equipment was destroyed by ATGM strikes (launched from the high-rise buildings of Ugledar), part was shot by enemy artillery, which fired extremely accurately. More than 30 units of armored vehicles were lost (I won’t give a breakdown by type), losses of “two hundredths” only among tankers - many dozens. Marines, special forces and motorized riflemen died even more. And - most importantly - all these losses turned out to be “one-sided” - the Ukrainians shot the attackers “like in a shooting range”, our fighters could not inflict counter losses on them.”
