Ukrainian paratroopers dealt a devastating blow to Vladimir Putin’s invasion as new footage shows the moment six Russian tanks are blown up in a single ambush on Friday. The brutal attack was captured on video and released by the Ukrainian Defence Ministry. Several huge explosions targeting the tanks can be seen in the aerial footage, which took place in the Donetsk region of Ukraine, on the frontline of the war.

Ukrainian paratroopers from the 79th Air Assault Brigade were behind the ambush on the column of Russian tanks.

They later claimed to have captured some of the Russian crew from the column.

UA Weapons, which tracks and monitors the military campaign in Ukraine, tweeted that six T-72B tanks were either damaged or abandoned after the ambush.

The account tweeted: “Engineering and artillery forces of the Ukrainian army stopped a Russian tank attack in the East recently – at least two T-80/T-72 series tanks were destroyed with four more damaged and abandoned.”
