The Russian Defence Ministry showed the destruction of two armoured vehicles of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The vehicles were destroyed by guided air-launched rockets in the Southern Donetsk direction, RIA Novosti reports.
The video, posted on the official Telegram channel of the ministry, shows rockets being launched at targets from a helicopter.
The Ukrainian forces also attempted to break through Russian defence lines in the area of the city of Bakhmut, the Russian Defence Ministry also said.
