Drone footage from Ukraine shows what appears to be Russian soldiers left behind by their own army who attempted to flee in a "Z" marked truck.
A military vehicle can be seen racing up a snowy mountain as two frantic soldiers trail behind on foot, desperately attempting to catch up to their escaping comrades.
The footage was shared by the Centre for Strategic Communications (StratCom) for the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU), who reportedly mocked the incident, according to The Sun.
"Another myth that 'the second army of the world does not leave behind its own' is debunked," StratCom said, it's been reported.
In the drone footage, several Russian soldiers can be seen standing around two parked military vehicles, with one boasting the distinctive "Z" marking – which is representative of Russia.
The video then cuts to vision showing the same two trucks racing up the snowy hill with two abandoned soldiers sprinting to catch up.
One almost makes it to the back of the truck but appears to slip and fall over, landing face-first into the snow.
The truck shows no signs of stopping to pick up the forgotten soldiers, as the distance between it and the abandoned soldiers quickly grows.
Commenting on the video, one man, who said he was.a soldier for 22 years, said he felt "physically sick" watching the footage.
"I have served in many places and seen things that were not so nice. But I can tell you now unequivocally that a British or even a NATO Soldier would never ever, ever do such a criminal thing as to abandon a fellow Soldier. It's disgusting. I feel physically sick," he wrote.
The time and location of the incident were not specified, however, according to Ukrainian reports, the Russian unit were fleeing from members of the 93rd Mechanised Brigade of the Ukrainian Ground Forces, the Sun reported.
This is another example of demoralised Russian troops as the war on Ukraine continues into its second month.
Since the war started, many Russian soldiers have surrendered to Ukrainian forces with reports President Vladimir Putin is fighting his own "personal war."
A British spy chief said Russia is faced with weapon shortages and has soldiers refusing to obey orders, some even sabotaging their own equipment.
Sir Jeremy Fleming, director of Britain’s GCHQ spy listening centre said it's increasingly clear that Mr Putin "massively misjudged" the situation in Ukraine.
Speaking at the Australian National University in Canberra, Sir Jeremy said: "We’ve seen Russian soldiers, short of weapons and morale, refusing to carry out orders, sabotaging their own equipment and even accidentally shooting down their own aircraft."
Meanwhile, Kurt Volker, former US ambassador to NATO and Special Representative for Ukraine Negotiations, told the ABC that it's clear Russia is “struggling” and will fail in its attempt to seize the nation.
"When you look at the numbers, you look at the fact that the Russian forces haven't taken any major cities at this point," Mr Volker told ABC’s Joe O’Brien.
"They are still bombing them but they are unable to advance. The convoys of vehicles that have been there for weeks now, it has been four weeks. They are still not advancing."
