‘Death ray’ gun wipes out entire Russian unit as they cross minefield
This is the moment when a unit of Russian soldiers was blown up by powerful weapons in Ukraine.
The footage shows Putin’s fighters walking through a field littered with exploding mines and gathering to talk before one of the groups is hit.
The weapons quickly fire at the other two groups, and then the video shows several wounded soldiers lying on the ground.
Their comrades can be seen running to save them, but the weapons explode again several times while they are being carried away.
The clip was posted by a “media person” account that covers the war in Ukraine.
The user, who says they were forced to flee their hometown in Kherson, believes the rocket used by the Ukrainians was a “death ray”.
This is the nickname for an anti-tank missile shooter, officially called “Stugna-P”, which can accurately detect targets and penetrate armor up to 800mm.
While the West has stepped up support for Ukraine this year, there is still widespread concern about the consequences of losing to Russia.
One of the Kremlin’s leading propagandists, Margarita Simonyan, warned the world that Putin would unleash a “Third World War” if Ukraine won the conflict.
The prominent figure, who is paid nearly £500,000 a year to run the state media empire RT, has reacted to the news that Western countries are sending tanks to Ukraine.
She said, “If you want to live, give up. And all this will stop in the blink of an eye. And that’s how it will end, sooner or later.
“The outcome of this battle is quite clear. It will either be our victory or a nuclear third world war.”
This is far from the first time that the Western world is facing threats of major escalation from Moscow.
Boris Johnson said Putin threatened to kill him last February, just days before Russian troops invaded Ukraine.
The Russian president allegedly said, “I don’t want to hurt you, but with a rocket, it only takes a minute.”
The “extraordinary” conversation followed the former prime minister’s visit to Kyiv in a last-ditch effort to avert war.
