Serhiy Haidai, the head of the Luhansk region, shared footage showing a completely destroyed place where the Russians were believed to be staying. S. Haidai confirmed that about 100 soldiers were liquidated. According to the official, the command headquarters of the 2nd Army Corps was destroyed during the attack, and even employees of the special services of the Russian Federal Security Service were killed.
However, S. Haidai did not confirm or deny whether the attack was carried out by Ukrainians or not, and traditionally reminded the safety rules when working with explosive materials. He said he would rather wait for information from the military command.
However, there is another interesting detail about this explosion. Later that day, photos from a Russian soldier’s smartphone appeared on the Telegram channel OperativnoZSU showing the exact location of the suspected explosion.
According to the channel, the location of the military base was determined from photos taken by this soldier with geo-tracking enabled. Photos were geo-tagged, and this data helped locate the location.
It is worth noting that there is no confirmation that this mistake actually led to the alleged strike, but it nevertheless speaks volumes about the level of security and discipline concerns of the Russian invaders in Ukraine.
