A Russian tank stuck in a large crater became a sitting duck for Ukrainian drones, a video shows

  • A Russian tank fell into a crater and was targeted by Ukrainian drones, new footage showed.

  • Ukraine’s 68th Jaeger Brigade claims to have destroyed eight Russian tanks in the Donetsk region.

  • The battle took place in one of the “most tense” areas along the front line, the Ukrainian General Staff said.

A new war video from the battlefield in Ukraine appears to show a Russian tank falling into a crater while fleeing Ukrainian fire.

The footage, released by Ukraine’s 68th Jaeger Brigade, begins by showing drone video of an approaching column of Russian armor. The company vehicle is disabled by an explosion. You see the debris flying into the air.

Drones then attack the rest of the column of tanks and armored vehicles.

One of the tanks drives into a large crater while crossing a field. A drone then targets the tank as at least one Russian soldier tries to flee.

A second video shows the tank bursting into flames and exploding.

Business Insider could not independently verify the video or the claims in the caption.

According to the video’s caption, eight Russian tanks and eight infantry fighting vehicles (IFVs) were destroyed. The video was shot in Pokrovsk in Ukraine’s Donetsk region, one of the “most tense” areas along the front line, according to an update from the Ukrainian General Staff.

“Ukrainian armed forces continue their efforts to stabilize the situation and cause major fire damage,” the update said.

Later on June 14, Nazar Voloshyn, the spokesman for the Khortytsia Forces Group, a formation of the Ukrainian Ground Forces, confirmed the brigade’s claims in comments to Ukrinform.

“In the Pokrovsk axis, our forces destroyed eight Russian tanks and knocked out another two. That’s ten in total. This constitutes a tank company,” he said.

“In addition, in this part of the front, during the mentioned period, our defenders destroyed eight more armored fighting vehicles, two artillery systems and four other vehicles (one of which was still damaged).”

Voloshyn did not specify when the video was shot but said 242 Russian troops had been killed or wounded during fighting in Pokrovsk.

“Our Ukrainian defenders did a good job yesterday and threw away a lot of Russian hardware, and even more Russian invaders along with their equipment,” Voloshyn said.
