A Russian tank has been filmed crashing into and crushing a civilian car being driven by an elderly woman in a suburb of Ukraine’s capital of Kyiv.
The incident, recorded from multiple angles, saw the armoured vehicle driving down a main road leading through a residential area.
As the tank quickly approached the civilian car driving in the opposite direction, it suddenly swerved towards it, giving the driver little time to react.
The much larger vehicle crashed head-on into the vehicle and rolled on top of it, crushing it under its weight, before rolling off and driving away. The car was shunted backwards and almost on to tram tracks.
Miraculously, reports said that the driver of the car survived the shocking crash, with a further video showing people working desperately to free her from the wreckage.
The incident occurred as Russian troops closed in on the Ukrainian capital after Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered a full-scale invasion early on Thursday.
