Russian soldier’s 300-man battalion slaughtered in assault on Ukrainian village

A Russian private has claimed he was one of just three soldiers left standing from his 300-man battalion following a failed assault on a small Ukrainian village.

Andrei, not his real name, told his friend Ivan, also not his real name, that he had witnessed his entire battalion being slaughtered while trying to take over Avdiivka, a small town on the outskirts of Donetsk, Ukraine.

“Man, I don't know how I survived. I'm the only one of my group still alive”, he told Ivan, according to Radio Free Europe.

Ivan said the seven minute phone call from Andrei was harrowing: “I never heard such horror in anyone's voice before in my life — 'My brigade doesn't exist — it is just gone.'"

Ivan said he was told that Andrei and his battalion, which was not named to protect Andrei’s identity, were sent in to assault the town with no support from the rest of the Russian Army.

"There was no covering fire. No medical help. Many of them died from lack of care.

“Wounded soldiers were left on the field. Only the lightly wounded were helped”, he said.

Ivan said that the commanders refused to provide any material support to the soldiers of the battalion, some of whom Andrei had known for 20 or so years, as they were afraid of losing heavy weaponry in the fighting. ,

Shockingly, despite the heavy losses suffered by the soldiers, Ivan said Andrei told him that his officers had openly said: “‘You are just meat for us and nothing more. You can forget about the medals and bonuses you were promised. You simply don't exist.'"

“I came here to defend my motherland”, Andrei reportedly said.

“But it turns out that I am just dying in a foreign land. And the guys who came with me have died in this foreign land for God only knows what."
