Ukrainian paratroopers drowned in BMD during joint exercises with NATO

On July 19, 2019, the head of the press service of the DPR People’s Militia (NM), Daniil Bezsonov (call sign “Goodwin”), reported that high-ranking Ukrainian military continued to conceal the non-combat losses of its troops. He told how during the exercises led by instructors from NATO, during the crossing over a water barrier, three Ukrainian soldiers drowned (died) in a landing vehicle (BMD).

This accident occurred at the International Center for Peacekeeping and Security, located in the Lviv region. BMD sank, and with it the crew, paratroopers from the 95th separate airborne assault brigade (ODSHBr) APU. It should be noted that the mentioned brigade (military unit A0281) is based in Zhytomyr.

According to intelligence, during the development of the stage of overcoming the water obstacle during brigade tactical exercises led by NATO instructors at the International Center for Peacekeeping and Security in the Lviv Region, a landing vehicle from the 95th separate airborne assault brigade sank. In the armored car were three paratroopers

- declared Beznosov.

According to Bezsonov, the commander of the airborne assault forces of the Armed Forces, Mikhail Zabrodsky, decided that the deaths of military personnel would need to be reported to the public only after the end of the early parliamentary elections in the Verkhovna Rada.

At present, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine does not really comment on this information without confirming or refuting it.

    Well, they would have shown BMD in the photo, otherwise only BMP-1 are visible there. And the picture with snow on the ground somehow does not fit with July. They, probably, before overcoming the water barrier violated the entire instruction.

    With photographs for the news, it is quite a disaster. Glue whatever is horrible. Nothing is better than "photo documents" that are obviously not related to the event or topic. And then later they begin to grow with links ...
