Russian Convoy Ambushed By Ukrainian Forces

( Incredible footage captured from a drone and released by the Ukrainian military on Thursday shows Russian tanks being blown up by Ukrainian fighters using weapons provided by the United States and other Western countries. The dramatic scenes were seen in the city of Kiev, the capital of Ukraine, and show just how hard the Ukrainian military is fighting back against Russian aggression.

In the footage, armored vehicles and tanks can be seen being blown up by the rockets. The vehicles were part of a convoy that included one vehicle carrying a thermobaric rocket launcher – a piece of military hardware that allows the Russians to drop bombs that get so hot that they are capable of vaporizing human bodies.

The United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defense said on Wednesday that Russia was using the bombs, known as “vacuum bombs,” in Ukraine. The weapons work by pulling in air as they land, making the explosion bigger and hotter.

The footage appears to show over 35 Russian vehicles trying to push their way into Brovary, which is an eastern suburb of Kiev. However, the convoy was stopped by Ukrainians firing rockets at the vehicles. It appears as though the Ukrainians were able to successfully hold off the convoy.

Who else is amazed at just how long Ukraine has been able to fend off Russian forces in its capital city?
