The russian army continues to flee northeastern Ukraine and leaves behind valuable "gifts" for the defenders of Ukraine

During the battles against the russian forces in the Kharkiv region, the fighters of the Armed Forces of Ukraine captured a 1L261 radar station from the 1L260 "Zoopark-1M" counter-battery system, as evidenced by the photos published on social media.

This is only the second such radar that became a trophy of the Armed Forces during the entire war against the russians, the first one was captured at the end of March 2022, and another such radar was destroyed in August 2022 during the battles in the Zaporizhzhia direction. And of course, in April 2022, the russian military showed its signature negligence when they crashed their 1L261 radar into a bridge in Voronezh.

This was not the only valuable trophy that the russian army left behind today, fleeing from the Kharkiv Region. In another video from the outskirts of Balakliia, the occupiers abandoned one BM-21 rocket launcher and one Tor-M1 surface-to-air missile.

According to the conservative estimates of analysts of the Oryx website, this "Tor-M1" is the second one to become a trophy of the Armed Forces of Ukraine since February 24. According to the same estimates, during the war against the russian federation, the soldiers of the Armed Forces took at least 22 enemy BM-21 "Grad" MLRS as trophies.
