Ukraine Destroys Russian Convoy Through Successful Drone Strike

Ukraine Destroys Russian Convoy Through Successful Drone Strike

Ukraine has successfully annihilated armed Russian convoys through a series of drone strikes, the country's military has revealed.

Footage captured by the Turkish-made TB2 drone shows more than a dozen vehicles moving along a road before being taken out.

Ukrainian Armed Forces Commander-in-Chief Valerii Zaluzhnyi said the drone attack took place near Malyn, which is approximately 100 kilometres northwest of Kyiv.

"Our operators hit convoys of enemy troops with surgical accuracy," Zaluzhnyi said, adding that the enemy was 'destroyed'.

The strike came hours after Russian forces razed hangars at an airfield in northern Kyiv, one of which contained the world's biggest aeroplane - a one-of-a-kind Antonov An-225 Mriya.

The massive transport plane - measuring a whopping 84 metres in length - was destroyed, along with several other aircraft.

Business leaders from Ukrainian military manufacturer Ukroboronprom later vowed that Russia would foot the bill to rebuild the iconic plane once the fighting is over.

"Russia has destroyed our "Mriya"... but the dream of Ukraine to get free from the occupier cannot be destroyed," General Director of Ukroboronprom Yuriy Husyev said in a translated statement released online.

"We will fight for our land and our home until we win. Everything will be Ukraine!"

Meanwhile, the Ukrainian Ministry of Defence has taken to social media to call on citizens to thwart Russia's attempts to further invade.

"In order to confuse and disorient the enemy who is illegally moving to Ukraine, we call [on our citizens] - to remove plaques with numbers and names of streets/cities/villages in their regions," the Ministry said via Twitter.

"We will do everything possible to clear Ukraine of the Russian occupier as soon as possible!"

Locals have also blown up bridges to delay Russian advancement, as well as creating their fake road signs telling Russians troops to 'Go f**k yourself', 'Go f**k yourself again' and 'Go f**k yourself back in Russian'.
