Drone footage shows the bombing of Borodyanka in Ukraine

Burnt-out Russian trucks littered the main street of the Ukrainian city of Borodyanka on Thursday after fierce fighting between residents and Russian troops.

Drone footage of the aftermath shows the city’s main street clogged with a dozen wrecked trucks and fires still smoldering in skeletal high-rise buildings.

A pile of tattered Russian vehicles can be seen outside the city’s post office, most burned beyond recognition.

A truck that appears to be intact bears a white “V”. a marking similar to that of other Russian units in the region.

Down the street is a cluster of tall buildings scorched by fire. Rooms ripped open by Russian decrees spill their contents onto the street below. A nine-story building across from the town’s community center has nearly snapped in two. Borodyanka, a small town of 13,000 people 35 miles northwest of Kyiv, was shelled Wednesday night in front of an approaching column of Russian forces.

City residents said they repelled the Russian advance with Molotov cocktails.

“They started shooting from their APC at the park in front of the post office,” a local resident told a Reuters reporter on Thursday.

“Then these bastards started the tank and started firing at the already burned down supermarket. It caught fire again,” he said.

“An old man ran outside like crazy with big round eyes and said, ‘Give me a Molotov cocktail! I just lit her APC! …Give me some gas, we’ll make a Molotov cocktail and burn the tank down!”

It was not immediately clear how many people died in the shelling or fighting and what strategic interest Russia had in the city.

Borodyanka is 18 miles west of Hostomel, which was the scene of fierce fighting for control of Antonov Airport.
