Russian troops fall off fleeing tank that ends up in a tree as Ukraine’s forces continue advance

Astonishing footage has captured the moment that Russian soldiers are thrown off a fleeing tank which is sent crashing into a tree as Ukraine’s forces continue their 30-mile advance into Russian occupied areas.

The fleeing tank is seen desperately retreating at a considerable speed near Izyum in the Kharkiv region with several soldiers on top of its hull.

But moments after Russian troops are thrown from the tank, it is seen swerving off the road before smashing straight into a tree which falls on the remaining soldiers.

The drone footage, released by Ukrainian armed forces, mocks the Russians over their vow: ‘We do not abandon our people’. 

The video also highlights how the tank ‘lost’ its men. Although the number of casualties is unknown, reports say that Vladimir Putin is suffering catastrophic losses in the Kharkiv region. 

Ukraine’s rapid territorial gains have caught Putin’s men off guard at a vulnerable section of their front line in an attack that could be a major turning point in the war.

Military analysts say that the attack threatens an important supply hub used by Russian forces in the east.

More emerging footage has captured the moment that firing Russian troops are struck down in an explosion.

Before firing off six rounds, Russian soldiers are caught off guard as their tank is blown up by Ukrainian forces, leaving a soldier severely wounded. 

The bloodied soldier who says that he cannot hear anything’ is supported by a fellow Russian troop who replies, ‘Hold on. If you start falling asleep let me know.’

It comes after significant gains made by Ukraine with President Zelensky claiming that his men have liberated more than 30 settlements as they punch through Putin’s defences in the Kharkiv region.

‘Our army, intelligence units and the security services are carrying out active engagements in several operational areas. They are doing so successfully,’ the Ukrainian president said in a video address to the nation.

‘We are gradually taking control over new settlements. We are returning the Ukrainian flag and protection for our citizens everywhere.’ He added that Ukrainians should report any crimes committed by the occupying forces.

There are claims that an encirclement of Russian troops means they will suffer their worst battlefield defeat since 1943 during the Second World War.

More and more footage of Ukrainian advancement is emerging. One video showed the moment that a Russian tank was blown up and destroyed by a Ukrainian anti-tank guided missile.

The video shows the moment that the missile – a UA ATGM – makes contact and completely decimates the Russian tank as it goes up in flames.

Leading up to its destruction the tank can be seen firing itself before the guided missile destroys it and plumes of smoke can be seen rising from it.

The advances being made mean Putin’s main line of communication with its army group in Izyum is severed – which could trap thousands of his troops between the river and advancing Ukrainian forces.

Were it to fall, Putin could lose an entire army group, treating its operations in the Donbas.

Just yesterday, videos and pictures emerged showing troops standing victoriously on top of Russian flags in the liberated eastern Ukraine city Balakliia, while others have been shown in footage discovering the burnt out wreckages of enemy tanks.

Ukrainian troops were being welcomed as heroes by gleeful residents who have lived under Russian occupation for months. 

This morning, Kyiv soldiers were pictured with their own nation’s flag as they claim to have retaken Kupyansk – something Russia disputes.

Putin’s invaders have responded to the latest humiliating blow by releasing footage as they look to send in huge reinforcements to Kharkiv – but there is little sign they have been deployed let alone effective.
