Ukraine’s military says that it has destroyed another Russian UR-77 Meteorit, a mine-clearing vehicle that the Kremlin has reportedly used as an offensive weapon to launch missiles.
Ukraine’s Operational Command South, a military formation covering much of the country’s southern region, said in a Facebook post on Friday that Ukrainian forces had eradicated the Soviet-era deminer in the forest outside of the northeastern Kharkiv region. The post follows a string of recent boisterous announcements by Ukrainian officials touting the destruction of Russian military equipment.
“It is worth noting that this is far from the first such trophy on the account of our fighters,” the command said in the post. “Since the beginning of the large-scale invasion of the Russian occupation forces, more than a dozen similar enemy vehicles have been captured and destroyed.”
