Putin’s suicide tank attack as counter-offensive is ‘paused’

Russian soldiers are packing tanks with explosives and remotely driving them at Ukranian trenches before detonating in massive fireballs as part of a terrifying new tactic in the Ukraine war.

And terrifying new video footage from Donetsk shows the remotely-controlled T-54 laden with six tons of explosives lumbering towards the Ukrainian trench this week.

As the Ukrainians unleash a wall of fire, the suicide tank hits a mine and slows down.

A Ukranian soldier then hits it with a rocket blowing the tank up in a massive fireball.

Despite the tank being halted approtimately 200ft from the Ukranians, it is likely the huge pressure wave from the explosion killed some soldiers.

Russia has used the tactic at least twice before, althrough this is the first time the explosion has been caught on camera.

On this occasion, Russian propaganda channel ‘Romanov’ claims that Moscow stuffed the tank with six tonnes of explosives before attempting to blow up Ukrainian soldiers by sending it to Kyiv territory using autopilot.

However, the ISIS-style tactic backfired when the remotely-controlled suicide bomb blew up on a landmine around 100 metres from the front line.The T-54 was then finished off by a Ukrainian RPG, triggering the massive explosion.

The Russian defence ministry has claimed to have used this potentially devastating method of destruction on at least one occasion before, declaring on Saturday that its soldiers had packed an MT-LB full of explosives and driving it at Kyiv forces. Moscow claimed that it resulted in significant losses but this is unconfirmed.

They posted footage of soldiers filling the tank with explosives ahead of sending it towards Ukrainian troops.
