Ukraine's armed forces have released a video of Kyiv's Special Operations Forces purportedly taking out a Russian drone crew using a U.S.-made High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS).

The footage shared on Telegram provides an aerial view, purportedly highlighting a Russian "BPAK" ZALA team, which is an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) unit. 

The 30-second video also shows the moment the small structure is hit with a HIMARS, erupting into flames. As smoke starts to billow out of the area, two individuals—presumably Russian soldiers—are seen fleeing on foot.

The video is still to be confirmed, but multiple news media has contacted been the Russian defense ministry via email for comments.
