This is the moment Russian invaders destroy a Ukrainian armoured personnel carrier in a deadly drone strike.
The devastating strike took place when Russian troops discovered the Ukrainian personnel carrier from the air while operating an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV).
According to the Russian Ministry of Defence (MoD), the Ukrainian armoured carrier was totally destroyed by the drone strike.
The MoD said in a statement: “The position of an armoured vehicle of the Armed Forces of Ukraine [AFU] was found by the crew of the UAV, after which the armoured carrier of the AFU was destroyed by the drone strike.”
In the footage, the targeted personnel carrier is seen parked by the side of a road opposite a smouldering building.
A missile suddenly strikes the armoured vehicle in an apparent direct hit and a large cloud of smoke rises into the air.
