A video shared on the "Warlife 18+" channel via Telegram highlights the courageous efforts of two Ukrainian soldiers thwarting an attack by Russian assault troops in the trenches near Avdiivka. This incident further demonstrates the inadequacy of the training provided to the Russian forces, who are vastly outmatched by the determined Ukrainian defenders.

The 47th Mechanized Brigade, stationed under Avdiivka, represents a formidable force in the Ukrainian military, striking fear into the hearts of Russian soldiers. This brigade is celebrated for its dynamic assaults on enemy positions, often gaining widespread attention online.
Despite numerous losses, the Russians seemingly fail to grasp the futility of their assaults. Each attack against the 47th Brigade ends in devastating losses, a fact proudly highlighted on the Ukrainian army's website.
Anton Herashchenko, a former advisor to the Ukrainian Minister of Internal Affairs, shared the footage of this triumphant encounter on his X profile.
