(Rallying Patriots) – A new report from The Western Journal has revealed a Ukrainian T-64 tank going up against an entire column of Russian armored vehicles. The tank, which had a good position, pulled off an ambush on the Russian column, completely hiding itself in a secluded position and firing through a very narrow angle at the enemy.
The video footage shows Russian vehicles firing wildly into the town as they continue to receive incoming fire, unable to discover the location of the Ukrainian tank.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is why Russia has not managed to be nearly as successful in their campaign to take over Ukraine as they originally hoped they would be.
A platoon of Russian troops left the vehicles and set off on foot down the road at the 0:58 mark of the video as a result of the heavy fire the column was taking.

The drone footage also shows Ukrainian artillery strikes on the column after the ambush.
“The footage was recorded by the Carpathian Sich Battalion of Ukraine’s Ministry of Internal Affairs. Geolocation of the footage identified its setting as Novo Basan, a city in northern Ukraine liberated from Russian occupation late last month,” the report said.
“At least two Russian armored vehicles appear to have been destroyed in the ambush, in which the tank was supported by Ukrainian artillery fire. One can be seen taking a direct hit from a tank round in the drone footage,” The Western Journal stated.
“The other vehicle may have been hit either by artillery fire or the tank ambush itself,” the report continued.
One of the vehicles destroyed during the assault has been identified as an armored personnel carrier.
Russia has pulled its forces located in the northern part of Ukraine after Russian President Vladimir Putin’s troops have failed to capture the capital city of Kyiv.
A retired U.S. Army general looked at the footage and stated that it is evidence of how poorly trained the Russian military is.
Appears RU tanks firing wildly at no targets, UKR in very good hide positions with cover&concealment. Good kill zone. (Plus, last time I was in RU, learned new tankers get 1 round/year, no tables)

“The Ukrainian T-64 tank in question is an ancient model, by armored standards, entering service in the Soviet Union in 1966,” the report says.
“Heavy losses of armored vehicles and tanks in Russia’s war have raised questions about their utility, but with proper tactics and concealment, it appears a single Ukrainian tank can inflict heavy damage on a far greater enemy,” the Western Journal concluded.
Seems Putin bit off more than he could chew with this invasion of Ukraine. There’s no way he’s going to be able to achieve his objectives in the area without a continued struggle. And the way things are going, he may not accomplish them at all.
The Ukrainian people refuse to be so easily conquered.
Pray for a peaceful end to this situation.
