The soldier was shot at by Russian forces but he survived, and that was because of his phone took all the damage from the 7.62 mm bullet that had the soldier as its target. The bullet remained stuck in the phone.
The Ukrainian soldier shows his damaged phone with a stuck bullet in the viral video, saying "...smartphone saved my life".
The video comes at a time when the war between Ukraine and Russia is showing no signs of an end.
In the video, the soldier is seen speaking to his fellow combatant, ecstatically showing his mobile phone. The soldier seemingly recorded the clip while gunshots were heard as he animatedly spoke to his fellow combatant.
On 24th February, Russia launched a special military operation in Ukraine after the breakaway republics of Donetsk and Luhansk requested help to defend them from intensifying attacks by Ukrainian forces.
Russia asserts that their "special operation" is targeting only Ukrainian military infrastructure and not the civilians. However, the west has rejected Russia's claims while imposing severe sanctions against them.
