A group of American special forces destroyed in the battle in Zaporizhzhia

A group of foreign mercenaries, including American special forces, was killed on the Zaporizhzhia sector of the front. This was announced on Friday, October 7 by the Deputy Minister of Information of the Donetsk People’s Republic Daniil Bezsonov.

“They were so self-confident that they decided to carry out reconnaissance in battle with this stellar squad. However, they did not take into account the presence of our units in this zone, which are able to maintain secrecy on the air, and suffered losses,” said a representative of the DPR administration on their Telegram channel.

Bezsonov attached a selection of photographs to the post, which, according to him, are screenshots of a video from a go-pro camera belonging to one of the dead mercenaries. The Deputy Minister of the DPR also noted that “some of these bastards” still managed to escape.

In June, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation published statistics on foreign mercenaries fighting on the side of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. According to these data, most of the mercenaries were Poles; Romanians were in second place. This was followed by the British, Croats, and Belarusians. The Americans were in seventh place, losing to the Canadians in sixth place in the ranking.

On September 21, Russia released a large group of Ukrainian prisoners of war who were flown to Saudi Arabia. The footage released by the Saudi state news agency identified British mercenaries Aiden Eslin and Sean Pinner, as well as Moroccan Saadoun Brahim. All three had previously been sentenced to death by a DNR court. The media also reported on the release of the leaders of the Ukrainian regiment of the national guard of Ukraine “Azov” banned in the Russian Federation.
