VIDEO: Watch Ukraine Wipeout an Entire Russian Military Convoy

Video footage shared on social media back in November of last year shows the extent of the damage being done to Russian military vehicles across Ukraine, with an entire convoy of vehicles left destroyed on the road in Ukraine.

The video, which was initially shared on Telegram and later reposted on Twitter by Ukraine Weapons Tracker, shows a series of Russian military vehicles and tanks left in a state of total disrepair, with large mounds of earth piled up on the road, indicating that the vehicles were destroyed by a series of quick missile strikes.

The vehicles seen in the clip appear to be two T-72B3 tanks, a BMP-2, a cargo truck, and a military engineering vehicle – meaning the strikes not only took out potential threats to Ukrainian forces, but also essential vehicles for Russian forces trying to repair weaponry or move vehicles from one place to another.

“An annihilated Russian convoy in Kyslivka, #Kharkiv Oblast- including a valuable T-90M tank, which is the second one to be destroyed in Ukraine so far,” the Ukraine Weapons Tracker account writes.

“Two T-72B3 obr.2016 tanks, a BMP-2, cargo truck and IMR-2 military engineering vehicle were also destroyed there.”

Additional Footage Suggests HIMARS Strikes

An additional clip also shared by the same account, this time recorded from the air, appears to show the same convoy soon after the vehicles were hit.

The vehicles are seen still burning, with large plumes of white smoke rising into the air.

The strike reportedly occurred in September, but the footage has only just been released back in late November.

The second video clip appears to have been recorded by a Ukrainian drone and shows how the vehicles may have been hit by multiple HIMARS strikes.

Online geolocation experts also appeared to confirm reports that the strike occurred in Kharkiv Oblast, with one account sharing photographs and satellite imagery identifying key parts of the terrain.

@GeoConfirmed destroyed Russian equipment on the H-26 near Kyslivka, Oblast Kharkiv. Video starts at around 49.627778, 37.878665,” one geolocation Twitter account shared on November 25.

HIMARS have proven highly effective for Ukrainian forces throughout the conflict with Russia, and over the last week, Turkey delivered its own missile system that has been compared to the Western HIMARS.

Turkey’s TRLG-230 MLRS can be used alongside TB-2 Bayraktar drones to conduct precision strikes on Russian military equipment and positions. HIMARS are still continuously making their way to Ukraine from the United States.

    Must be a slow day if we’re being presented with videos from six months ago.
