Vladimir Putin humiliated as Ukraine blows up 10 tanks and wipes out entire unit

Ukraine: Russian armoured vehicle destroyed by drone

Russia has lost at least 10 tanks as well and troops and combat vehicles after a failed attack on a Ukrainian town.

Moscow’s troops launched an assault on the eastern Ukrainian town of Vuhledar, in a region that has seen intense fighting for months now.

The destroyed tanks and vehicles were found in the village of Mykilske, according to Ukrainian military bloggers.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said after the failed Russian attack: “There was an attempt by the enemy to advance in the direction of Vuhledar, but our soldiers stopped it, inflicting heavy losses on the enemy: dozens of vehicles, many killed and wounded.”

Vuhledar is positioned at the intersection between the eastern and southern front lines, and has seen the most brutal fighting since the full-scale invasion was launched by Russia.

The Ministry of Defence in Britain has claimed that another Russian assault, this time in the city of Avdiivka, has “floundered” after Moscow’s troops came up against “strong” Ukrainian defences.

The MoD says that Russia lost around 200 armoured vehicles during the fighting in the city over the last three weeks.

The MoD statement said: “In the south, the Ukrainian advance remains relatively static between the two main lines of Russia’s well-prepared defensive positions,” the MoD said in a statement.

“Around the Donbas town of Avdiivka, a large-scale Russian assault has floundered on strong Ukrainian defences.”

EU Commission president Ursula von der Leyen has also told Ukraine that the bloc will stand with the country “as long as it takes.”

She said: “Of course, the enlargement topic will be at the top of the agenda but also our financial and military support.

“The most important message is reassuring that we stand by Ukraine for as long as it takes.”
