Earlier, the Russian Ministry of Defense reported that Russian troops carried out a high-precision strike on the temporary deployment point of foreign fighters in Kharkov, the bulk of whom were represented by French mercenaries.

RT military correspondent Murad Gazdiev noted that the death of 60 foreign mercenaries in Kharkov after a strike by Russian troops is a very large loss.
