Russian soldier tosses grenades dropped by Ukraine drone: video
Ukraine forces have astonished observers with, among many other actions defending their homeland, their innovative and deft deployment of UAVs as reconnaissance and combat craft. But those aerial assets don’t always complete their missions as planned, as witnessed by a new video capturing a Russian soldier pitching drone-dropped grenades away before they can explode.
The footage was uploaded Sunday by UK daily The Independent. The video focuses on someone identified as a Russian soldier lying on his side in a shallow trench, where he repeatedly snatches up bombs dropped from a drone deployed by Ukraine defenders – chucking them away with an annoyed attitude before they can detonate. The second of those explodes off-screen a split second after it is tossed off.
Presumably the munitions either contained a timer rather than impact detonator, or were partially defective.
