Foreign-supplied tanks destroyed in Kiev – Russia

Samizdat | June 5, 2022

Russian airstrikes have destroyed foreign-supplied tanks in the Ukrainian capital, Kiev, Moscow said on Sunday.

Defense Ministry spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov said during a regular briefing that Russian forces carried out airstrikes “on the outskirts of Kiev, destroying the T-72 tanks and other armored vehicles that were supplied by Eastern European countries and kept in railcar repair facilities.”

The spokesman did not specify where the tanks came from, but Poland previously said it had donated T-72 tanks to Ukraine.

Konashenkov said that military targets were also hit in Donbass, as well as in eastern and southern Ukraine, including multiple rocket launchers and a US-made mobile counterfire radar.

Ukraine’s General Staff earlier reported that Kiev was among the areas hit by Russian forces. Mayor Vitali Klitschko said that one person was hospitalized.

On Saturday night, the Donetsk authorities said Ukrainian troops shelled the city, killing five civilians and wounding 20.

Russia and Ukraine have repeatedly accused each other of shelling residential areas and killing civilians.

  3. If those tanks are replaced with NATO tanks than their military will have to be trained to work with these new weapons. What those countries are actually signalling to Russia is that they have interrupted their defensive capabilities.

    There is no strategic thinking from the west at all. It is a fanfare.

    • I like that — “fanfare”-cum-flailing, faliing, farcical Empire of False Hubris and Fabrications (Lies).

      I cannot believe that all this is going to end well…the world may “tank” of its own belligerence and militarism. Diplomacy/active listening/discussion/win-win resolution, anyone?…Nope.
