Ukrainians speak out one year after Russia’s invasion
Ukrainian refugees and civilians talk with Fox News Digital about how their lives have been in the year following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
One of the many Russian tanks that have been destroyed in the war in Ukraine has now been put on display by activists outside Russia’s embassy in Berlin.
The turret of the rusty T-72 B1, which was taken out of service by an anti-tank mine near Kyiv on March 31, 2022, according to Reuters, is now pointed in the direction of the diplomatic post.
“The broken tank signifies downfall. Ukraine is going to be Putin’s Stalingrad,” Wieland Giebel, an organizer of the demonstration, was quoted as saying.
Giebel told Reuters that the tank was brought to Germany with assistance from the Ukrainian Defense Ministry and the Ukrainian National Museum of Military History.
