Video footage shot by a VSU drone showing unsuccessful attempts to hit a Russian soldier with grenades was released online, world media reported.
The video shows Ukrainian soldiers using a drone to throw grenades and bombs at a Russian soldier. But the fearless soldier successfully throws aside all the enemy ammunition that hit him.
