Ukrainian troops Blitz Russian artillery

Ukrainian troops reportedly sent Russian artillery troops rushing after shelling an enemy gun position.

Video footage of the assault shows a series of earth-shattering explosions, understood to be the explosion of guns and ammunition.

The position eventually goes up in a huge ball of fire, sending what appear to be flaming shells randomly through the air.

A series of what appear to be Russian vehicles can then be seen evacuating the area at high speed, apparently as Ukrainian forces advance.
