Russian soldiers are seen targeting surrendered Ukrainian soldiers, with Russian snipers systematically shooting at Ukrainians walking in trenches.

Reports confirm a portion of Ukrainian forces was compelled to surrender and enter Russian captivity. This represents another setback for the Ukrainian military following their retreat from Avdiivka.
