Russian tanks explode on their own mines near Kupyansk
The State Border Guard Service of Ukraine released a video of the destruction of Russian tanks that had been blown up by their own mines
The State Border Guard Service of Ukraine reported the information on their Facebook page.
“The assault on our positions in the Kupyansk sector ended unsuccessfully for two enemy T-72 tanks. Facing their own mines, one of them immediately exploded, while the other only 'took off its shoes'. The kamikaze drones sent by the Staliy Kordon fighters immediately flew out and provided it with 'emergency assistance', the message reads.
Defense Express notes that this is not the first time that the invaders have lost their equipment in such a way, having run into their own mines - here we can recall a recent episode when the enemy lost its T-90M Proryv tank and BMP-3 at once.
"And this is a reason to mention again that due to the density of minefields on the battlefield, such losses are quite likely, not rare and not all of them are recorded on photos or videos - and they happen, unfortunately, on our side as well," the media writes.
For this reason, it is important to record the location of Ukraine's own minefields as thoroughly as possible, to provide the army with demining equipment and to train armored vehicle crews as best we can so that they have as much experience as possible in overcoming such obstacles.
