He added: ‘High-quality work of the unit in the eastern direction [of Ukraine].’

In the footage, Russian soldiers can be seen running across the field to help those who were hit by the missile strike.

But moments later, they are struck by a second blast as they carried the injured soldiers across the field. 

The remaining Russian troops began to run across the field – attempting to find cover under the trees – before being hit by a third missile.

Footage then shows them lying dead in the field, which is scarred by the missile strikes. 

The latest video comes just weeks after more than 100 Russian troops were wiped out in one missile strike. 

Using a Tochka-U missile, a weapon specifically designed to hit smaller targets deep in the enemy’s defence, Ukraine was able to use just one blast to kill Russian soldiers. 

Meanwhile, on the front lines in Ukraine, fighting raged in the eastern Donetsk region, with Russia again shelling the key town of Vuhledar.

President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said Ukraine was facing a difficult situation in Donetsk and needed faster weapons supplies and new types of weaponry, just days after allies agreed to provide Kyiv with heavy battle tanks.

‘The situation is very tough. Bakhmut, Vuhledar and other sectors in Donetsk region – there are constant Russian attacks,’ Zelenskiy said in a video address late on Sunday.

‘Russia wants the war to drag on and exhaust our forces. So we have to make time our weapon. We have to speed up events, speed up supplies and open up new weapons options for Ukraine.’

Meanwhile, Russian missile strikes killed three people and injured six more in the southern Ukrainian city of Kherson on Sunday night. The shelling damaged a hospital, school, bus station, post office, bank and residential buildings.

Among those reported injured were two women in the hospital at the time: a nurse and a cafeteria worker.

Russian troops had occupied Kherson shortly after Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, and held the city until Ukrainian forces recaptured it in November.

Since its liberation, the city has regularly been shelled from Russian positions across the Dnipro river.

Later on Sunday a missile struck an apartment building in the northeastern town of Kharkiv, killing an elderly woman, regional Governor Oleh Synehubov said.
