A Chinese reporter filmed how a tank explosion near Mariupol lifted its turret 30 meters into the air


In the plot of the Chinese television company Phoenix Television from the Donbass, a spectacular, but very dangerous moment of ammunition hitting the T-72B3 tank was shown, as a result of which the ammunition detonated. The incident occurred right in front of the film crew, which was heading from Mariupol to Donetsk to record the process of evacuating the civilian population, writes the American online edition The Drive.


As a result, a Chinese reporter filmed how the blast wave lifted a 12-ton tank turret into the air by 30 meters. Later on the air, journalists admitted that if they had been there a few minutes earlier, they would also have been hit.

The publication notes that the Chinese showed the video on May 6. However, it is not known exactly when the recording was made.


The detachment of the tower can be observed in all tanks, where the ammo rack (shells) is located directly in it. Therefore, when a tank is hit, the subsequent powerful detonation of ammunition can send the tower high into the sky. But this is the first time that a tank turret flying at such a height was filmed during a Russian special operation in Ukraine. Chinese journalists are, in fact, the only foreigners currently working in the territories liberated by Russia, due to China's alliance with the Russian Federation.

      The tank, apparently, was ours, as you can see the crew, which ran away from the tank .. I hope everyone is safe!

      A Phoenix TV film crew on the front lines in eastern Ukraine traveled to the Mariupol Azov Iron and Steel Works 6 days ago to track and report on the retreat of civilians organized by the United Nations, the International Committee of the Red Cross and the Russian army. On the way to the interview, a Russian tank suddenly exploded in front of the reporters. There was a massive explosion, and the video recorder on the interview car captured the breathtaking moment.

    This is war. In all its glory, post-forties times. It remains only to start the trenches from the times of the First World War.
    Although the latter can easily turn from imperialist to socialist. Here I imagine an incident in the head of the chief strategist.

    Chinese journalists are, in fact, the only foreigners currently working in the territories liberated by Russia, due to China's alliance with the Russian Federation.

    I am more than sure that under the journalistic roof in those territories, "specialists" of all Chinese intelligence services that they have there are working quite calmly and freely.
