During the counter-offensive in the Kherson region, the Armed Forces of Ukraine seized captured armored vehicles and weapons of enemy.

The Russian invaders lost several BMD-2 airborne combat vehicles.

In addition to conventional BMD-2s, Ukrainian soldiers received a captured airborne armored personnel carrier BTR-D.

It was developed using components and assemblies of the BMD-1, but there is no turret with weapons.
