Ukrainian special forces have shown how a kamikaze drone strikes the manpower and tank of Russian invaders.

The video of the drone 's work was published by the Command of the Special Operations Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

This video is published to the public for the first time.

Two tank crews of the occupiers were destroyed during the use of the latest weapons.

According to Ukrainian soldiers, the Russian invaders were quietly drinking alcohol at one of the positions, sitting on the armor of their T-72 tank.

"A modern kamikaze drone, equipped with a powerful explosive, flew straight into the tank, causing irreparable damage to the enemy. The whole process of destroying the enemy was filmed by a camera located on the killer drone, ”the SSO said.

The Ukrainian military noted that this video was published for the first time in public, but noted that the combat use of kamikaze UAVs became a common practice for the SSO of Ukraine during the war with Russian invaders.
