A group of furious Russian soldiers revealed their frustration over the defective military equipment they were provided to defend themselves against the Ukrainian counteroffensive. Since Vladimir Putin launched a partial mobilisation order in September, similar videos have emerged from the battlefield with conscripts complaining about the faulty military gear being given. in the latest video coming from the battleground, a Russian soldier showed how defective his helmet is and how he was treated like cannon fodder.

Filming his broken helmet, the unnamed soldier said: “These f***ing amazing helmets arrived from Stavropol Krai. 

“We press it, it rips apart.”

As he filmed the shell of his helmet, he said: “Look, this was done with a regular pocket knife. It comes off.

“So easy, not even talking about a bullet.”

A Russian-installed Kherson official said Moscow will likely pull out troops from the west bank of the Dnipro river in a potentially major retreat. If confirmed, the move would be a major turning point in the war.

However, Ukraine said it was suspicious Moscow could be setting a trap by feigning a retreat from the Kherson region.

A spokesperson for Ukraine’s southern military command said: “This could be a manifestation of a particular provocation, in order to create the impression that the settlements are abandoned, that it is safe to enter them, while they are preparing for street battles.
