Devastating moment Ukrainian kamikaze drone blows up Russian tank sparking huge fireball

NewsDevastating moment Ukrainian kamikaze drone blows up Russian tank sparking huge fireball

Heart-stopping footage shows the moment a Russian tank is blown to smithereens by a kamikaze Ukrainian drone.

The 54-second video offers a brief yet intense glimpse into the war-torn region, showing the devastation visited upon Russian forces.

The video begins with a Russian armoured vehicle clearly in the crosshairs of a Ukrainian FPV (First-Person View) drone.

Tension rises as the drone barrels towards the vehicle. Within mere moments, the armoured behemoth erupts into a colossal fireball, sending plumes of thick, dark smoke and fire into the sky.

The powerful explosion then ignites a firestorm that swiftly engulfs nearby trees in the unspecified location.

The video has garnered significant attention on Reddit, with users expressing a mix of awe and scepticism.

While some hailed the Ukrainian forces for what appeared to be a remarkably successful strike, others questioned the reliability of the footage.

One point of contention revolved around the condition of the Russian armoured vehicle, with some suggesting that it may have been old or improperly maintained, potentially explaining the rapid and dramatic explosion.

Either way, the optics for Vladimir Putin are not good. It comes as the Russian autocrat suffered yet another setback in Russian-occupied Crimea on Saturday.

Ukraine launched another missile attack on Sevastopol on the occupied Crimean Peninsula, a Russian-installed official said, a day after an attack on the headquarters of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet that left a serviceman missing and the main building smouldering.

Sevastopol was put under an air raid alert for about an hour after debris from intercepted missiles fell near a pier, Gov. Mikhail Razvozhayev wrote on the messaging app Telegram.

He later added that another missile fragment fell in a park in northern Sevastopol, parts of which had to be cordoned off. Ferry traffic in the area was also halted and later resumed.

Loud blasts were also heard near Vilne in northern Crimea, followed by rising clouds of smoke, according to a pro-Ukraine Telegram news channel that reports on developments on the peninsula.

Crimea, illegally annexed by Russia in 2014, has been a frequent target for Ukrainian forces since Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered a full-scale invasion of Ukraine in February 2022.
