Ukrainian tank crew member saw coming death at the last moment

KYIV ($1=36.90 Ukrianian Hryvnias) — Despite the coming increasingly cold winter, the hostilities in Ukraine do not stop. You could say they have decreased, but the war continues. Logically, in these severe weather conditions, unmanned aerial vehicles should be used more often. In this way, human involvement is limited, and technology ready to “suicide” is relied upon.

A camera on a Russian kamikaze drone captured precisely the explosion of a Ukrainian tank. The Lancet, the Russian loitering munition, descends swiftly and headlong down toward its target. At the last moment, a member of the crew of the Ukrainian tank reaches through the hatch of the turret, but it is too late. The drone powerfully hits the tank, which is destroyed. Off to the side, another reconnaissance drone of the Russian Armed Forces filmed the entire scene.

Russia has increased its use of surface-to-air, air-to-surface missiles and loitering munitions over the past 60 days. Apart from Russian drones, which are actually not many in number, the Russians mostly use Iranian Shahed kamikaze drones. Winter hostilities are expected to decrease dramatically, with both warring parties focusing efforts on repairing damaged equipment and regrouping forces.

2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine

On 21 February 2022, the Russian government claimed that Ukrainian shelling had destroyed an FSB border facility on the Russia Ukraine border, and claimed that it had killed 5 Ukrainian soldiers who tried to cross into Russian territory. Ukraine denied being involved in both incidents and called them a false flag.

On the same day, the Russian government formally recognized the self-proclaimed DPR and LPR as independent states, according to Putin not only in their de-facto controlled areas, but the Ukrainian Oblasts as a whole, and Putin ordered Russian troops, including tanks, to enter the regions.

On 24 February 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an invasion of Ukraine by Russian Armed Forces previously concentrated along the border. The invasion followed by targeted airstrikes of military buildings in the country, as well as tanks entering via the Belarus border.

Russia has so far not recognized the invasion of Ukraine as a “war”, although that is exactly what it is, claiming that it is a “special military operation”. According to the UN, in which Russia has its permanent representation, for military action to be defined as a “special military operation”, it must have a resolution issued by the UN. There is no such resolution, which automatically defines the military actions of the Russians as an invasion and war against the citizens of Ukraine.
