Russians use stolen sewer hatches to ‘reinforce’ their tanks

In Kherson region, soldiers of one of the airborne brigades of the Air Assault Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine destroyed the Russian military equipment and personnel. Even the stolen sewer hatches could not protect the Russian tankers from just punishment.

The Air Assault Force Command published a relevant video on Facebook.

The Ukrainian defenders note that the enemy resorts to various, sometimes ridiculous tricks in order to survive. "For instance, on one of the smashed tanks, Ukrainian soldiers discovered ‘additional armor’, namely stolen sewer hatches which were supposed to protect the crew. But this did not help them to save themselves – the end result is the same. Every invader will have the same fate!" reads the publication.
