After losing over one hundred and forty citizens and scores injured, the Ukrainian military said it has recorded a first major success against Russia.
Best News Network reports that the European nations have been at war since last Thursday following order of invasion by President Vladimir Putin of Russia.
However, in a release on Saturday morning, the Ukrainian army announced its first account of explosions that destroyed the Russian tank in western Kyiv.
The Military Law Enforcement Service of Ukraine announced that the country’s military has successfully “destroyed a column of equipment of the occupiers” in the Beresteiska district in Kyiv.
“According to preliminary information, it is about 2 cars, 2 trucks with ammunition, and also with the help of NLAW anti-tank missiles an enemy tank was destroyed,” the service told CNN.
