Ukrainian soldiers bomb a BMP-2 amphibious fighting vehicle following a Russian attempt to cross the Seversky Donets River.
Ukrainian Special Operations Forces (SSO) carried out the attack near the village of Dronivka in the eastern Ukrainian region of Donetsk Oblast.
The Ukrainian military said they blasted the BMP-2 amphibious fighting vehicle with a Spanish Instalaza C90 shoulder-fired grenade launcher.
The Instalaza C90 weighs less than 5 kilogrammes and is considered one of the lightest launchers in its class.
Troops finished off the Russian BMP-2 after it was abandoned during an unsuccessful attempt to cross the river by the Russian Armed Forces.
As the BMP-2 still appeared to be in working order, a decision was taken to destroy the amphibious vehicle.
The Ukrainian Centre for Strategic Communications (StratCom) said on 25th May: “SSO fighters destroy the ruined BMP-2, which was abandoned during an attempt to cross the Seversky Donets River near Dronivka.
“Shots were fired from the Spanish grenade launcher Instalaza C90.”
In other developments, Ukrainian officials said Russian forces have attacked over 40 towns in the eastern Donbas region.
They added that five civilians died, 12 were wounded and 47 civilian sites were destroyed or damaged in the latest attacks.
Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree that makes it easier for Ukrainians in occupied areas to become citizens of Russia.
Russia has also done away with the upper age limit for contractual service in its military.
Ukraine has called Russia's offer to lift the blockade of its Black Sea ports in return for the lifting of some sanctions "blackmail".
The blockade has led to shortages in wheat and cooking oil across the world.
