Derbent is now working as part of the Akhmat special forces of the 2nd Army Corps of the Russian Armed Forces.

It is noted that in the Northern direction there are fierce battles "head-on", there are many shooting confrontations.

The Russian fighter told about one of the battles.

"I took off the commander, the guys came from the right flank. Three were removed, the other five were simply knocked down - even the Kalash were abandoned. We're going, we're not giving up. If something does not work out for us in the first assault, then an hour later the second one begins. We still take a position," he said.

He also said that many enemy drones are working in this direction, which drop fragmentation ammunition for grenade launchers and grenades.

Earlier, the Russian Armed Forces destroyed a group of operators of unmanned aerial vehicles of the Ukrainian army in the Donetsk direction.
