Ukraine’s defense ministry released video on May 10 showing the destruction of one of Russia’s most advanced tanks, the T-90M “Breakthrough”, outside Staryi Saltiv, a town in Kharkiv Oblast close to the Russian border.

The ministry said members of the Kharkiv Territorial Defense targeted the tank with a Swedish-made hand-held Carl Gustaf anti-tank rifle.

“We thank the Swedish people and the King for their help,” the ministry wrote on Twitter.

Storyful could not independently confirm what weapon was used against the tank, which was described by Ukraine’s defense ministry as “the pride of the Russian tank industry.”
