This is the moment Ukrainian forces destroy a Russian armoured vehicle on the battlefield.

The footage shows the Russian armoured vehicle being hit by Ukrainian ordnance.

It can then be seen gushing smoke as it continues to advance on the battlefield before eventually coming to a stop after being hit a second time.

The images were also relayed by the Ground Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on Tuesday, 28th February.

The US Department of State spokesperson Ned Price has said that China has “very clearly “sided with Russia and has been “anything but an honest broker” when it comes to helping achieve peace in Ukraine.

Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov has said that the Chinese peace plan was worthy of attention but the nuances in their proposal were important and he did not currently see signs suggesting that a peaceful solution to the conflict could be found.

He said: “Any attempt to formulate theses for reaching a peaceful settlement of the problem is welcome, but, of course, the nuances are important.”
