This is the moment Ukrainian troops blow up a Russian BMP-3 tank trundling along a town street.
Newsflash obtained the video from the General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, which credited the 130th Reconnaissance Battalion with the attack.
The General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces said: “BMP-3 blown to pieces. The work of the 130th Battalion.”
In the footage, the targeted tank is seen trundling along a main road in the town before a missile is fired and apparently blows the BMP-3 to smithereens.
The video shows a missile apparently being fired from a derelict building down onto the armoured vehicle.
As the missile corkscrews through the air, it hits the target, causing a tremendous explosion.
According to the Ukrainian military, the tank’s wreckage was scattered for hundreds of metres after the direct strike.
Today marks the 40th day since Russian invaded its neighbouring country.
Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the invasion of Ukraine on 24th February in what the Kremlin is still calling a “special military operation” to “demilitarise and denazify” the country.
The United Nations’ International Court of Justice in The Hague, the Netherlands, has ordered Russia to stop its invasion and remove its troops from Ukrainian territory.
Ukraine’s President, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, has said that his government is prepared to discuss adopting a neutral status as part of a peace deal with Russia.
From 24th February to 4th April, the total combat losses of Russian troops stand at about 18,300 personnel.
The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine said that Russia has also lost “647 tanks, 1,844 armored fighting vehicles, 330 artillery systems, 107 multiple launch rocket systems, 54 anti-aircraft warfare systems, 147 aircrafts, 134 helicopters, 1,273 motor vehicles, seven boats/cutters, 76 fuel tanks, 92 unmanned aerial vehicles, 25 special equipment units and four mobile SRBM systems”.
