"As a result of the damage, two trucks with ammunition and one tank militants were destroyed," he said.
According to the source, the number of the dead Russian mercenaries can be hardly counted, but there is "definitely not less than 20 corpses."

A strike on the terrorists column was done early in the morning. At this time it was in a forest, heading from Diakovo towards the Savur-Mohyla height under control of the Ukrainian troops.
"The militants there (near the Savur-Mohyla - Ed.) obviously run out of ammonution. And the convoy was bringing them supplies. But it will not dot it anymore. They were drinking for two hours. Apparently the convoy was bringimg also anti-tank guided missiles (ATGM) since the missiles flew around," the paratrooper summed up about the successfully performed work.
Although, he added, several tanks of the militants still managed to get out of fire and escape in the direction of Savur-Mohyla.
As it was reported earlier, on July 28 Ukrainian soldiers took over the strategic Saur-Grave height after fierce fighting on the border of the Rostov region of the Russian Federation.
This victory, in particular, opened a corridor to supply the Ukrainian units that have been heroically restraining the enemy and do not allow new shipments of weapons and mercenaries from Russia to cross our border. Our border guards and paratrooopers are fighting in the south of the Donbas surrounded by terrorists and under constant fire from the territory of the Russian Federation.
