Russian drone strikes a volunteer's car while UP crew is nearby
A Russian FPV drone struck the car of Yevhen Tkachov, a member of the UN Refugee Agency humanitarian mission "Proliska", as he was delivering humanitarian aid to Chasiv Yar, Donetsk oblast, reports "Ukrainian Pravda", whose journalists were filming the humanitarian aid delivery.
As the editors emphasized, Tkachov's car had clear blue labels of a humanitarian mission on the hood and roof.
The explosion crushed the trunk, destroyed part of the aid and broke the car windows.
The volunteer himself managed to take cover, as did the journalists.
"The FPV drone was probably charged with cumulative munitions, i.e. there was no shrapnel, which saved the volunteer, the UP journalists and a civilian woman," the editors assume.

"Proliska" was delivering humanitarian aid to the Skhidniy microdistrict, which is separated from the main part of Chasiv Yar by the Siversky Donets – Donbas canal. This area was significantly battered by Russian artillery.
According to the DeepState map, Chasiv Yar's Skhidniy microdistrict is about 3 kilometers away from the Russian positions.
