A T-90 tank of the Russian invaders was destroyed in the Kharkiv region.

The video of the explosion of the combat vehicle was released by journalist Yuriy Butusov.

According to the journalist, the Russian tank was blown to pieces after an attack by Ukrainian fighters of the Kharkiv operational group of forces (OUV) this morning.

Judging by the video footage, the combat vehicle of the Russian occupiers was hit, presumably by an anti-tank weapon (ATRK, RPG), or other weapons.

After the impact, smoke started inside the combat compartment of the tank, which indicated the start of a fire.

After a short period of time, the ammunition detonation took place, which led to a powerful explosion, which actually completely destroyed the combat vehicle.

The description of the published video states that the Ukrainian military neutralized a Russian T-90 tank, which fell into pieces after being hit.

We will remind, in May in the Kharkiv Region, the Defense Forces destroyed a modern Russian T-90M "Breakthrough" tank.

The occupying forces of Russia tried to enter the recently liberated settlement. The Ukrainian military intercepted the Russians on the road and neutralized the convoy of armored vehicles of the occupiers. During the battle, Ukrainian forces destroyed a modern Russian tank.
