Watch: This is where Putin’s propaganda tank goes up in flames

KYIV, UKRAINE — The first confirmed loss of Putin’s Terminator propaganda tank has now been confirmed. The Terminator is a Tank Support Fighting Vehicle [TSFV or BMPT in Russian] and is designed to operate in their formations to destroy threats such as infantry with anti-tank weapons, and armored vehicles armed with anti-tank missiles.

The Terminator is armed with two 2A42s, Ataka anti-aircraft guns, and two AGS-17s, which have a rather odd track layout and require a separate crew member to aim and fire.

Also pictured is a T-90M with what is likely a TMT-C anti-mine trawl, which can deal with many types of mines. The condition of the tank is not very clear, it may be abandoned, or it may just be a picture of the car from a distance. In the last photo, there is a tank of the T-72 family left, but due to the quality of the photo, it is difficult to tell whether it is a T-72B or a T-72B3.

It is indicated that the first “killers” of the Terminator are the 81st Airmobile Brigade of the Ukrainian Armed 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.
