Hundreds of Russian Soldiers Using Cell Phones Were Just Targeted and Killed

Russian soldiers had been gathered together into a building and told to watch Putin’s new year’s message.

Some or even many allegedly turned on their cell phones.

Then they were dead.

Russia’s defence ministry said on Wednesday that 89 servicemen were killed in the Ukrainian attack on Makiivka over the weekend, adding the main reason for the attack was unauthorised use of mobile phones by the troops.

Ukraine estimates for the strike are more in the 300 range. Given accuracy of targeting at this point, they’d probably know better than Russia.
