According to the Defence Ministry, retreating radicals left behind military vehicles and weapons, which Russian troops will transfer to the militia forces of the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics.
Russian troops achieved success amid the battle in the suburbs of Kiev, the MoD reported on Monday.

"Units of the Russian Airborne Forces forced nationalist battalions and the Ukrainian military out of the Kiev suburbs, who, retreating, left tanks, AMPVs, a lot of firearms, anti-tank weapons, and ammunition", an official statement read.

The list of the trophies includes T-64 and T-72 tanks, as well as German-made Panzerfaust 3 anti-tank weapons, 9K38 Igla missile systems, and other arms.
Over the past several days, the Russian military has made considerable advances amid the special op in Ukraine, while the Donbass militias have reclaimed multiple settlements, liberating them from Kiev's forces.
Russia launched its special operation in Ukraine on 24 February, after Kiev's troops intensified attacks against the Donbass republics, forcing mass evacuations. Moscow stressed that the op was started to rescue the people of Donetsk and Lugansk, who've suffered from an eight-year-long war waged against them by Ukrainian forces, and stated that the goal of the operation is the demilitarisation and denazification of Ukraine.
