The Ukrainian Armed Forces have recently claimed that they have destroyed Russia’s elite 104th Airborne Regiment of the 76th Guards Air Assault Division during a battle that raged for 14 hours. If confirmed, it would be the second time this week that the Russian forces have recorded a massive defeat in Eastern Ukraine.

According to a post by the Ukrainian Armed Forces 80th Assault Brigade on Facebook, the Ukrainian troops intercepted the Russian forces trying to advance through a highway somewhere in the Donbas region.

The post does not specify where exactly in Donbas they fought. Still, it can be hypothesized that the battle happened somewhere along Severodonetsk as fighting has been largely focused in this specific city. Recent reports of the 76th Air Assault Division have also been spotted along the Bakhmut-Lysychansk highway, which may be the highway they are talking about.

“The enemy has not gotten through! Units of the 80th separate paratrooping brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine continue to inflict losses on Russian occupants, fighting them in the eastern direction.”

They claim that Ukrainian paratroopers from Lviv fought the Russians with NLAW anti-tank weapons to destroy Russian armored vehicles and troops and would engage in a rifle fight that would last for 14 hours.
