National Guard’s special forces destroy Russian tank, four IFVs in Avdiivka direction

Special forces members of the National Guard of Ukraine destroyed one tank and four infantry fighting vehicles of the Russian invaders in Avdiivka direction.

"The National Guard forces and means continue to carry out combat missions to repel armed aggression. The most active military operations are ongoing in Donetsk direction. The National Guard's special forces are also performing their tasks," the National Guard posted on Telegram, publishing a video showing some fragments of the attack.

It is noted that thanks to effective work using aerial surveillance systems and drones, as well as thanks to the interaction with other units of the Defense Forces, Ukrainian defenders manage to systematically strike enemy positions and destroy their armored vehicles.

As of January 11, the Russian Federation already lost 112,960 troops, 3,094 tanks, 6,159 armored personnel carriers, 2,078 artillery systems, and other weapons and equipment in the full-scale war waged against Ukraine.
