Watch: Tough Russian armor, two attempts failed to destroy a tank

KYIV, UKRAINE — A Russian tank does not stop fighting, even after two failed attacks. The first attack was by a Ukrainian FPV kamikaze drone. The drone flies straight to the turret, slams into the tank, and explodes. It can be seen that the impact was textbook – between the turret and the body of the tank. It blew some sheet metal, but the tank didn’t stop moving.

The tank continues to operate on the battlefield. Takes position and begins firing in succession. The target is not visible in the distance, but this is understandable, given that the tank has a combat range of hundreds of meters to kilometers.

The tank continues to pour in a barrage of artillery fire when suddenly the tank is attacked again. This time it’s not clear if it’s hit, as the tank doesn’t rock the way it did the first time. But dirt and mud come from the right side of the chassis. The tank stops firing, reverses, and continues on its route.

This episode of the war shows how difficult it is on the battlefield. Because everything doesn’t always work the first time. Not always even an accurate hit is a guarantee that the opponent’s platform will chatter away.

On 21 February 2022, Russia claimed that Ukrainian shelling had destroyed an FSB border facility. Russia claimed that it had killed 5 Ukrainian soldiers. They 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. According to Putin not only in their de-facto controlled areas, but the Ukrainian Oblasts as a whole. 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, a “special military operation” can only take place after a UN resolution. There is no such resolution. So this is an invasion and war against Ukraine.
