Quote: “Using a kamikaze drone, the intelligence forces of the Kraken special unit destroyed the Grenadier autonomous observation tower in Bryansk Oblast.”

Details: The special unit has posted a video of the operation. It shows that the tower was destroyed on the second attempt.

However, the unit did not specify when this happened.


  • On the morning of 2 March, the Governor of Russia’s Bryansk Oblast, which borders Ukraine, claimed that a Ukrainian sabotage and reconnaissance group (SRG) had infiltrated the oblast, taken civilians hostage and fired on a car. This story was quickly picked up by propagandist media, but they have been publishing extremely contradictory data.

  • At the same time, Ukrainian border guards have reported that the situation on the border with Russia is under control, and any information suggesting that there is some “Ukrainian sabotage and reconnaissance group” on the territory of the Russian Federation is an information provocation by the aggressor country.

  • The so-called Russian Volunteer Corps later declared that it was their soldiers, not a “Ukrainian reconnaissance and sabotage group”, who entered the territory of the Russian Federation on 2 March to show that free Russian people with weapons in their hands can fight against Putin’s regime.

  • Denis Nikitin, the commander of the Russian Volunteer Corps (RVC), said that the Ukrainian authorities were aware of the RVC’s operation in Bryansk Oblast.
