This footage was recorded in 2016 during a battle between trenches in Zaitseve town, Ukraine.
In a six-minute long firefight, a group of Ukrainian soldiers from 43 battalion “Patriot” fend off an attack from pro-Russian “DPR” forces from their trench positions.
Video provided by soldier nicknamed “Kum” (in English – father of one’s godchild).
DPR forces took the settlement under their control in the beginning of the War in Donbass, in 2014. Ukrainian forces reoccupied the settlement in the second half of 2015.
