Flags decorate the sombre route down the road in Luhansk where it is claimed Russian soldier's have been buried

Chilling footage of miles of what are claimed to be graves of Russian soldiers by the roadside in eastern Ukraine has emerged online. 

Footage posted on Belarusian media outlet NEXTA’s Twitter feed shows the harrowing scene of miles upon miles of graves in Luhansk as the camera passes by in a vehicle. 

The video is posted with the caption ‘Putin liberated #Luhansk from the invaders’. It is not clear when the footage was filmed. 

Several are lined with large flags along the route, and some are even laden with pictures of what is assumed to be the deceased. 

In June, Russia claimed that it had ‘liberated’ 97 per cent of the Luhansk province, bringing the Kremlin closer to its goal of fully capturing the eastern industrial heartland of coal mines and factories.

However, earlier this week, it was revealed that 39 men from the 252nd motorised rifle regiment had walked off the frontline in the Luhansk region and demanded to go back to Russia.

They were left alone at the front, abandoned by their commanders, said a source.

‘For several days they hid from shelling, some were seriously wounded, others were killed,’ she said.

‘Our men ran out of provisions and water, there was no ammunition.

‘They ate what they could find, and drank from a puddle. Nothing was brought to them, they were simply sent to their deaths.’

More footage posted online this week showed dozens of ‘drunk’ Russian mobilised troops in a brawl in the latest case of major indiscipline among Vladimir Putin’s draftees.

The bloody fight in Omsk left one man with a suspected severe head injury.

The conscripts went on a vodka binge as they wait to be sent to the frontline in Ukraine.

Police were seen intervening in the fight at Leninisky market – near a major training base – seeking to restore order.

The chilling footage was shared online over the weekend

The ugly brawl follows multiple mutinies in recent days with Russian men refusing to be sent to the front or protesting about being ‘cheated’ over payments.

In one last week, 2,500 mobilised Russian men in Kazan faced down a ‘drunk’ general in a protest over their training camp conditions and rusty weapons.  

The flurry of footage from the east comes after Ukraine’s army accused Russia of the large-scale destruction of civilian vessels moored on the banks of the Dnipro River in the occupied southern region of Kherson on Sunday. 

Ukrainian troops are currently trying capture the area, as they pile on the pressure on the wester bank of the Dnipro that divides the country, fuelling speculation that Moscow’s forces are preparing to retreat to the other side. 

In a statement, a spokesperson for Ukrainian General Staff said fuel from the destroyed vessels had leaked into the river’s delta. 

They also accused Russian forces of appropriating the vessel’s engines and other equipment. 

The statement fitted into a pattern of mounting tension in the region, where Russian-installed occupation officials claimed an act of sabotage knocked out power and water supply in the city of Kherson on Sunday.

The Russian Defence Ministry is yet to comment. 

Russian efforts to make ground and hold onto parts of Eastern Ukraine continue to be repelled by the Ukrainian military.

The Ukrainian armed forces claim to have repelled 14 attacks in Kharkiv, Luhansk, Donetsk and Zaporizhzhia in the last 24 hours.

Meanwhile, Ukraine said that 35 Ukrainian settlements in Chernihiv, Sumy, Kharkiv, Donetsk, Zaporizhzhia, Kherson, and Mykolaiv were struck by the enemy.

In a statement on Friday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said: ‘The most fierce fighting throughout this week has been concentrated in Donbas near the cities of Bakhmut and Soledar. We are holding our positions.

‘On these and some other fronts in the Donetsk region, the Russian army has lost so many lives of its citizens and so much ammunition that it probably surpasses the losses in the First and Second Chechen Wars combined. But the real level of the losses of Russia is being hidden from Russian society.’
