    This is the audacious moment a Russian tank is obliterated just outside Mariupol, with its turret shooting up hundreds of feet into the air. Amazing video shot by Chinese state TV channel Phoenix shows the sudden blast in eastern Ukraine, which saw the Russian tank wiped out instantaneously. It's not clear what sort of weapon was used to detonate the immense explosion, but it must have been hefty to trigger such a blast. Bizarrely, the tank's turret stayed perfectly intact as it flew 250ft (76m) into the air above the busy road into war-torn Mariupol, south-eastern Ukraine. The Chinese journalist who shot the footage said her driver had to slam on the brakes to avert the blast. Phoenix TV wrote: 'Reporter Lu Yuguang escaped death during the interview in eastern Ukraine [as] the driver needed emergency deceleration to avoid danger.' It added: 'Phoenix Satellite TV dispatched a frontline interview team from eastern Ukraine to go to the Mariupol Azov Steel Plant on May 6 to discuss the evacuation of civilians by the United Nations, the International Committee of the Red...
    THIS is the moment an entire column of Russian tanks was blown to smithereens in a lethal barrage as Ukraine rains death on Vladimir Putin's invaders. The striking footage shows Ukrainian troops unleashing hell on dozens of the Russian tyrant's war machines. 2The footage shows Ukrainian troops unleashing hell on dozens of Russian tanksCredit: TWITTER 2Bombs can be seen raining down on the vehicles one by oneCredit: TWITTER In the video posted by Ukraine's 54th Mechanized Brigade, the column of Russian tanks can be seen making their way down a rural road before the Ukrainians launch a deadly blitz. Bombs can be seen raining down on the vehicles one by one as smoke billows across the fields from the fierce strikes. One of the bombs appears to hit two vehicles at once, with pieces of a tank exploding hundreds of feet into the air.

    While Vladimir Putin showed off columns of tanks in Red Square, the reality on the ground in Ukraine is that hundreds of his mangled military vehicles are now rusting in fields after his botched attempt to capture Kyiv. The Daily Mail discovered a vast ‘tank graveyard’ full of charred military hardware yesterday in Bucha, a middle-class suburb 20 miles from the capital, which was the scene of fierce battles and the mass murder of civilians by Russian forces before they made a humiliating retreat.  Pictured: Destroyed Russian military vehicles, taken out by Ukrainian forces defending Kyiv and now pictured dumped outside Bucha in a makeshift 'tank graveyard' Pictured: The wreckage of a Russian tank is seen amongst the twisted metal of other destroyed Russian military vehicles in Bucha, UKraine Pictured: Two men inspect the wreckage of a Russian armoured military vehicle in Ukraine A damaged tank is seen as unusable due to the artillery attack in Mariupol, Ukraine The mass wreckage left after Russian attack has been left to rust Ukraine’s military estimates it has destroyed 1,145 tanks and 2,764 armoured...
    Russian kindergarten children dressed up in a variety of pro-Russian military outfits ahead of the country's Victory Day parade, a video on social media has shown. Leading the group of pupils was one young boy dressed as a Russian tank with a white 'Z' symbol emblazoned on the front - a common feature of Moscow's military vehicles currently involved in fighting in Ukraine. The boy was shown in military uniform and a leather helmet while a Russian flag flew on the camouflaged cardboard tank fashioned around him. Other children were shown dressed as fighter jets, soldiers and army medics. At least two more were also dressed as tanks, decorated with red Soviet stars. Their teachers also wore similar Soviet-style military costumes as the class paraded through the courtroom of the kindergarten. It was not immediately clear where in Russia the kindergarten was.  The white 'Z' has become a key propaganda symbol in Russia since Vladimir Putin launched his brutal invasion of Ukraine on February 24. It is expected that the symbol will feature prominently in Victory Day parades to be held across...
    Russian fighters have been sharing tips with one another about how to deliberately damage their own equipment and hamper Russian President Vladimir Putin’s war plans in Ukraine, according to recordings of alleged Russian troops’ phone calls that the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) intercepted. In one regiment, one Russian soldier allegedly said they’ve been pouring sand into the tanks’ fuel systems to clog them up. “I don't follow stupid orders, I simply refuse,” one fighter can be heard telling a comrade. “The motherf*cker sent me to tanks, motherf*cking piece of shit. I f*cked it up and that's it.” When the fellow Russian soldier on the other end of the line heard the unit wasn’t punished for the insubordination, he indicated he might repeat the tactic later in his own unit. Another Russian fighter shared with a family member that he and his comrades deliberately damaged their tank—the last one left in their regiment—to interfere with an attack plan, as well, according to another intercept the SBU shared. “We have one tank left in the regiment,” he said. “In short, we...
    Dramatic footage has emerged of the moment a pair of Russian tanks suffered a direct hit from bombs stealthily dropped from a Ukrainian drone. Expertly flown by an operator believed to be from Ukraine's 503rd Naval Infantry Battalion, the drone swooped above two Russian infantry fighting vehicles (IFVs) at an estimated height of around 400ft, before letting loose its payload. Five seconds later, the anti-armour grenades detonated and engulfed the IFVs in a pair of huge fireballs. Ukraine's armed forces have used drones to great effect amid the Russian invasion, expertly conducting small-scale airstrikes and using drone-mounted cameras to analyse Russian troop movements to prepare ambushes. It is unclear where the drone strike took place, though Radio Liberty reported in February that the 503rd Naval Infantry Battalion was deployed in the Donbas region of Donetsk, eastern Ukraine, where fighting has intensified amid a major Russian offensive. It comes as the Land Forces of Ukraine today reported an estimated 23,000 Russian soldiers have been killed thus far in just nine weeks of war. A Russian armoured vehicle is seen centre seconds...
    With heavy weapons like first-line tanks, multiple rocket launchers, 155mm howitzers, attack helicopters and updated anti-aircraft systems flooding into Ukraine and beginning to reach the battlefield, the only thing missing from an all-out war between NATO and Russia are allied soldiers. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov responded to the upsurge in weapons shipments this week when he said, "NATO is, in essence, going to war with Russia through a proxy and arming that proxy." Lavrov accompanied that with some nuclear saber-rattling, and then said that NATO and the U.S. were running the risk of turning the war global and involving nuclear weapons: "The risk is serious, real. It should not be underestimated," he said Monday night on Russian state television. "Under no circumstances should a third world war be allowed to happen. There can be no winners in a nuclear war." No shit, Sherlock. Sixty-four days after Russia invaded Ukraine, it's finally dawning on the billionaires in charge over there that they might have made the proverbial mistake of biting off more than they can chew. On the same...
    A Russian anti-tank mine that had previously not been seen on the battlefield has been discovered in Ukraine, according to reports. When triggered, the PTKM-1R top-attack mine launches itself into the air above its target, before attacking from above in a potentially deadly strike. Sensors in the mine detect to the sound of approaching vehicles, and compare the audio it picks up to a pre-determined target list. This, its manufacturers say, means it won't be triggered when civilian vehicles pass by. According to The Daily Telegraph, Russia's armies began using the 45lb PTKM-1R in 2020. Analysts have said it is similar to the US-made M93 Hornet Wide-Area Munition, which is also a top-attack mine. A picture was shared on Twitter from Ukraine of one of the mines placed in a field. The photograph was reportedly taken on April 26.   Sensors in the mine detect to the sound of approaching vehicles, and compare the audio it picks up to a pre-determined target list. Once triggered, the mins tilts to a 30 degree angle and launches its explosive warhead into the air, scanning...
    Poland has sent hundreds of tanks to Ukraine as part of renewed heavy weapons shipments to help it win the war against Russia. Warsaw has sent more than 200 T-72s - originally produced by the Soviet Union - into Ukraine in recent weeks, the country's national radio broadcaster said today, along with mobile artillery, drones and rocket launchers as part of a $1.6bn package. Ukraine's allies have massively stepped up support for Kyiv as fierce fighting rages in the east, with Kyiv's generals today saying that Russia is suffering 'colossal' casualties in the pivotal battle for Donbas. Oleksiy Arestovych, a Ukrainian secret service veteran-turned presidential adviser, acknowledged his military is suffering 'serious losses' on battlefields in the east but insisted that Russia's casualties are 'much, much worse'. Meanwhile Ukraine continues to carry out attacks behind Russian lines to cut off vital supply routes, with a fuel dump in the Donetsk region catching fire today. Kyiv has not acknowledged carrying out any of the attacks - which have also hit railway bridges and ammo dumps - but is widely thought to...
    By Brad Lendon | CNN Russian tanks with their tops blown off are just the latest sign that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine isn’t going to plan. Hundreds of Russian tanks are thought to have been destroyed since Moscow launched its offensive, with British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace on Monday estimating it had lost as many as 580. But Moscow’s problems go beyond the sheer number of tanks it has lost. Experts say battlefield images show Russian tanks are suffering from a defect that Western militaries have known about for decades and refer to as the “jack-in-the-box effect.” Moscow, they say, should have seen the problem coming. The problem relates to how the tanks’ ammunition is stored. Unlike modern Western tanks, Russian ones carry multiple shells within their turrets. This makes them highly vulnerable as even an indirect hit can start a chain reaction that explodes their entire ammunition store of up to 40 shells. The resulting shockwave can be enough to blast the tank’s turret as high as a two-story building, as can be seen in a recent video on...

    Battlefield detritus, somewhere in Kharkiv Oblast. As I’ve been suggesting, it made no sense for Russia to expend more cannon fodder on rooting out Ukrainian defenders from the city-sized labyrinth that is the Azovastal steel plant. So Russia will put up a cordon around the place, and send the rest of their Mariupol forces north to join the fight for Donbas.  Except … have you seen the factory?  xScale and scope of the facility is hard to put into words. pic.twitter.com/q5usZUBIb7— Justin Peden ???????????? (@IntelCrab) April 17, 2022 The factory is over 4 square miles large. I measured the outside border of the facility and it was over 9 miles, half of it over water. Russia’s lack of night-vision goggles will only compound the difficulty of containing the Ukrainians at the plant. Indeed, its defenders ventured out of the complex a couple of days ago to rescue 500 Ukrainian border guards surrounded and low on ammo in a different part of the city. It will be possible for Russia to keep these forces in Mariupol, but it’ll be impossible to prevent them from roaming the city. Whatever...
    BRITISH soldiers on the frontline defending Europe from Putin’s forces have revealed they are “100 per cent prepared” and “ready for anything” while displaying their firepower. Lieutenant colonel Rupert Streatfeild says he is proud to be defending Europe from Putin while based in Estonia as part of a Nato operation. 4Colonel Ru Streatfield, commander officer of the Royal welsh Battle group 4British warrior armoured vehicles and crew 4Estonian Soldiers defend a position against a simulated attack from the combined forces led by the Royal Welsh He said the 2,000 NATO troops -  1650 of which are British - based near the Russia and Estonia border had swagger, were “buzzing” and armed with a detailed plan on what to do if Putin invaded the county.

    Russians lined the streets in the west of the country to cheer Putin's soldiers as they went to fight in Ukraine. People in the region of Kursk cheered and waved as alleged war criminal Vladimir Putin's troops passed by in a convoy of tanks and trucks.  The Ukrainian Ministry of Defence said footage of the scene showed the invasion was not only Putin's war. It said: 'This is their war too. It is often said that ordinary Russians should not suffer from sanctions. After all, it's Putin, not them, who started the war.  'In this video, residents of Russia's Kursk region happily see off Russian soldiers to go rob, rape and kill Ukrainians.'
    Two knocked-out Russian tanks have been pictured with 'Wolverines' sprayed on the side after a Ukrainian group of civilian resistance fighters named themselves in tribute to the 1984 anti-Communist film 'Red Dawn'. One of the two tanks was left abandoned by Russian soldiers west of Kyiv in the middle of the E40 highway, and was part of a larger convoy that came under attack by Ukrainian artillery fire and mostly destroyed. A second tank, this one more damaged than the first, was pictured on an unknown road running through a forest. It also had 'Wolverines' spray painted on it in white, this time on the turret. The image of the first tank was shared by Ukrainian Oleg Tolmachev on Thursday, after Kyiv's forces returned to the suburbs outside the capital following Russia's retreat from the region, where they have suffered heavy losses. Upon seeing the graffiti, commentators celebrated the picture as a nod to the 1984 cult classic, that centred on a group of teenagers fighting off a Soviet invasion of the United States. But it transpires that the graffiti...
    Two more of Vladimir Putin's tanks have been destroyed in Mariupol, new drone footage shows.  Separate aerial video shows Ukrainian soldiers dodging a Russian bombardment as they run through trenches in Donetsk Oblast, where civilians have been told it is their 'last chance' to flee before a fresh offensive by Moscow. Footage posted online purports to show two Russian tanks driving along the road in a residential area in the outskirts of the besieged southern port city Mariupol. Moments later Moscow's men are ambushed by Ukrainian troops using tracers with two direct hits. The Russian tanks attempt to flee the scene but are gunned down a second time in a volley of shots.  The Azov Battalion forces then fire off a round of extra ammunition, with several shots flying wayward of the flaming targets, in an apparent attempt to make sure the tanks have been destroyed.      It comes as Russia completed the pullout of 24,000 troops from Kyiv and Chernihiv in preparation for an expected major offensive in the Donbas with Donetsk, Luhansk and Kharkiv now seeing the worst of the fighting. Meanwhile...
    Hanna is calling from the shattered balcony of her second floor flat. 'Such a golden piece of land, what a beautiful town and such lovely people!' she shouts – at me and the rest of the world outside the Kremlin. 'And then they did this! The oligarchs in Russia stole their billions and now they make war on us!' Hanna is 83 years old, poor and sick. She once worked in a clothing factory in Kyiv. Today, every window in her apartment block has been broken by a blast. Some of the frames have been sucked out and lie in what passes for the surrounding garden. But Hanna is lucky, relatively. She is still alive. And what she can see, from up there, is far, far worse. But you don't need a grandstand view to appreciate the apocalyptic demolition of Borodyanka. It has – or at least, had – about the same population and lies the same distance north west from the centre of the Ukrainian capital as the Hertfordshire town of Tring does from London. The destruction of housing...
    NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg today warned the war in Ukraine could last 'months, even years' as there is no sign Vladimir Putin has lost 'his ambition to control the whole country'.  It comes as Ukrainian authorities today warned civilians in the country's east to flee 'now' or 'risk death' as Russian forces regroup ahead of what is expected to be a fresh offensive in the Donbas region.  Stoltenberg, speaking ahead of a meeting of NATO foreign ministers in Brussels, said the international community should be 'realistic' about Moscow's intentions and 'realise that this may last for a long time' as the war entered its 41st day.  'We need also to be prepared for the long haul, both when it comes to supporting Ukraine, sustaining sanctions and strengthening our defences,' he added. NATO's foreign ministers were meeting today and tomorrow to discuss sending more arms to Ukraine after the Czech Republic became the first bloc member to send tanks and armoured infantry vehicles to Kyiv.     Members of the trans-Atlantic alliance had until today given Ukraine only anti-tank and anti-craft missiles, small...
    WARSAW — Ukraine has acquired “a couple of dozen” main battle tanks from the Czech Republic, according to a senior Ukrainian official, as Central European members of NATO race to empower the Ukrainian military to withstand an expected Russian onslaught in eastern Ukraine. Most NATO allies have prioritized arming Ukraine with defensive weapons such as anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles, while some U.S. officials have worried that more advanced weaponry deliveries might provoke Russian retaliation. The Czech government has been involved in that effort since the first week of the war, but Czech officials are more transparent about the provision of more advanced equipment, which Prague regards as essential to the continued defense of Ukraine. “We have given everything, almost everything, that’s in the arsenal of the heavy mechanized land forces,” Czech Deputy Defense Minister Tomas Kopecny told the Washington Examiner. “We have been shipping basically all the equipment that is needed for heavy mechanized brigades [of] the Ukraine armed forces. And the Poles, they have been doing a lot as well.” Kopecny demurred when asked about tank deliveries specifically,...
