The special forces unit of Ukraine’s military intelligence, Kraken, announced on March 11 that it had destroyed two Murom military watchtowers in Russia's Bryansk and Kursk regions close to Ukraine's border.

A video published by Kraken shows the watchtowers being destroyed with anti-tank guided missiles.

One watchtower was located in the village of Krupets in Kursk Oblast, about seven kilometers away from Ukraine’s border. The other watchtower was destroyed in the village of Troebortnoe in Bryansk Oblast, three kilometers away from the border.

The Murom watchtowers conducted surveillance 15 kilometers deep into Ukrainian territory, according to the military.
