In shocking footage posted to social media, a bullet hole on the front of the soldier’s helmet can be seen before he turns around and shows where the bullet came out the other side. 

The soldier looks visibly shocked and takes off the helmet to show what looks like a gash on the top of his head.

In the clip, the bullet appears to have gone through both the hard and soft layers of the Ukrainian’s helmet, forcing out the inner material.

‘A bullet appears to have gone through his helmet but missed his head.’

Another wrote: ‘Wow that’s crazy. Looks like he got some wounding to his head from fragments. Luckiest guy in Ukraine today. Happy New Year.’

Some people questioned the quality of the helmet for the bullet to pass through it, with one person asking ‘What good are the helmets?’.

However helmets used by soldiers are reportedly not often designed to stop bullets but more to protect from debris and shrapnel.

The clip comes as ‘hundreds of Russian troops’ were killed in a Ukrainian HIMARS strike on a barracks in Makiivka, in the eastern Donbas region, at the exact moment Vladimir Putin was delivering his televised New Year address.

Russian commanders were among those killed in the attack, which happened minutes before midnight on December 31, reports say. 

It was initially impossible to verify the claims but it is clear from both sides that the Russian president has suffered a grievous blow, and is the latest in a growing list of embarrassments suffered by Moscow’s armies since the start of the invasion on February 24.
