Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “Shocking moment ‘six Putin commanders are blown up’ in Donbas | Russia Ukraine war” – below is their description.

Shocking moment ‘six of Putin’s commanders and five soldiers are blown up in vehicle ambush’. Footage thought to have been captured by the 56th Motor Rifle Brigade near the city of Avdiivka, in Donbas, shows one Russian vehicle getting blown up by a missile before a second crashes on to its roof. The video was posted online by Colonel Anatonly Shtefan, a Ukrainian officer, who said six Russian commanders and five soldiers had been killed in the ambush – which was launched as the Russians were heading back from a meeting in headquarters. It comes just a day after Lieutenant Colonel Olga ‘Kursa’ Kachura, who fought with Russian forces in Donbas, was said to have been killed in a missile strike on her car in Horlivka, just a short distance from Avdiivka. However, it is not yet clear whether that strike and the one caught on film are one-and-the-same.

In This Story: Donbas

The Donbas or Donbass is a historical, cultural, and economic region in south-eastern Ukraine, and bordering Russia.

In March 2014, following the Euromaidan and 2014 Ukrainian revolution, the Donetsk and Luhansk “People’s Republics” took control of areas within the region with support from Russia. Russia recognised their independence in February 2022. No other country recognises the independence of the areas.

Before the war, the city of Donetsk (then the fifth largest city in Ukraine) had been considered the unofficial capital of the Donbas. Large cities (over 100,000 inhabitants) also included Luhansk, Mariupol, Makiivka, Horlivka, Kramatorsk, Sloviansk, Alchevsk, Sievierodonetsk and Lysychansk. Now the city of Kramatorsk is the interim administrative centre of the Donetsk Oblast, whereas the interim centre of Luhansk Oblast is Sievierodonetsk.
