Two Russian soldiers lost their lives while laying mines on the left bank of the Kherson region. Ironically, upon returning, they detonated another mine they had previously planted.

The explosion was recorded by "Ptaki Magyaru" company commander Robert Browdie and shared on his Telegram channel. This incident occurred on a Wednesday on the left bank of the Kherson region.

Victims of their own trap

In the video, which lasts over three minutes, a boat can be seen transporting the soldiers. They successfully deploy the first mine and set another when the current sweeps their pontoon directly into a previously laid mine.

The resulting explosion is massive, leaving nothing behind but a cloud of smoke over the river.

The Dnieper River as the critical battleground

The Obozrevatel news portal dubbed them the "Undisputed leaders of the March Darwin Awards".

"Owing to the defensive fortifications on the right bank of the Dnieper in the Kherson region, the Russian military cannot get anywhere near them," Natalia Humenyuk, the head of the press center of the Operational Command "South," confidently stated at the beginning of March.

"Due to our geographical conditions, The Dnieper River represents the main line of defense in this conflict. Hence, it's crucial for us to prevent the enemy from crossing, landing on, or even near the right bank," the spokeswoman elaborated.
