Details: Border guards have published a video in which they reveal certain details of their tactics.

The guards use drones to scout out the locations of Russian military equipment and personnel. Subsequently, mobile groups that move along the front hit the identified targets.

Quote: "This time, at the occupiers’ positions, the guys opened fire from a tripod-mounted anti-tank grenade launcher. The military made adjustments with a drone, for greater accuracy of fire. This tactic allows us not only to inflict losses on the enemy, but also to move forward, occupying more advantageous positions for defence."

Background: The city of Sviatohirsk in Donetsk Oblast is occupied by Russian forces, but the Sviatohirsk Lavra, which is located on the other side of the Siverskyi Donets River, is under Ukrainian control.
