The relevant statement was made by the Land Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on Telegram, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
“The T-72 battle tank of the Russian army was completely smashed by the 128th Separate Mountain Assault Zakarpattia Brigade. Neither active defense, nor the so-called ‘brazier’ (bars welded on the top) helped it against the Javelin portable anti-tank missile system,” the report states.
After being hit with the missile, the tank ammunition detonated, and its turret exploded. The tank crew (three enemies) was destroyed without the possibility of being identified. None of Ukrainian defenders was injured.
