The press service of the brigade said this in a Facebook post, Ukrinform reports.
"On July 13, the enemy launched a massive attack on Ukrainian positions. But we were ready. Air assault soldiers of the 80th brigade, having organized a clear tactical interaction with other units of the Ukrainian Armed Forces and National Guard, hit nine Russian tanks (nearly a tank company!!!), seven armored vehicles (APCs and IFVs), a truck and destroyed about 70 occupiers," the report said.
The report added that Ukrainian forces used Stugna-P, Javelin and NLAW anti-tank missile systems and RPG-7 and AT-4 grenade launchers to destroy Russian military equipment.
"The destruction of such a large amount of the invaders' equipment in just one day is certainly not the final victory of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, but a significant step towards bringing this victory closer," the report said.
