The Ukrainian army showed a video showing the moment of destruction of a Russian T-80 tank with a drone. The attack on the vehicle allegedly took place near Kupiansk in the Kharkiv region in the east of the country.

On the recording made available by the Ukrainian army, we can see a record of the transmitted image from the camera of the combat unmanned aerial vehicle. The image disappears at some point, after the drone probably hit a Russian tank.

The next recording shows the effect of the attack – a burning tank and fire engulfing the turret, and two people standing next to it, probably members of the T-80 crew. According to the Ukrainian soldiers, the tank was completely destroyed and will no longer pose a threat to the Ukrainians retaking their territory.

The attack on the tank was carried out by soldiers of the 92nd mechanized brigade of the Ukrainian army.
