Villagers and farmers seized a £12m Russian missiles system and set fire to it in a field as the troops “ran across the Ukrainian fields like rats”
Farmers filmed the burning missile system near to the city of Bashtanka in the southern Ukrainian region of Mykolaiv Oblast on 1 March.
The Mayor of the city of Dnipro, Boris Filatov shared images of the burning Pantsir-C missile system on social media and said that farmers seized and destroyed it.
Filatov added, “I usually cannot stand victorious scene, sabre-rattling and hat throwing. War is terrible grief, but these people (farmers) cannot be defeated.
“Today, collective farmers from Bashtanka, without realising it, took and burned the latest Pantsir-C system worth $15 million.”
The Mayor added, “The ‘winning people’ (Russian troops) ran across the Ukrainian fields like rats.
“Good night my country.”
