Ukraine finds new TANK GRAVEYARD packed with wrecked Russian vehicles near Izyum massacre as Putin’s soldiers flee | The Sun

UKRAINE has found a new tank graveyard packed with wrecked Russian vehicles near the Izyum massacre site as Vladimir Putin's troops flee for their lives.

Mad Vlad's 'impressive' military kit lay in waste near bushland after Ukraine took new territory during its lightning counter-offensive.

A recording uploaded to Reddit shows a number of burnt-out tanks and military vehicles rusted over in a quagmire of mud.

It comes as Ukrainian fighters have captured their first village in Luhansk and show no sign of slowing down.

President Vladimir Zelensky's brave men regained control of Kreminna and the village of Bilohorivka close to the city of Lysychansk.

The strategically important city fell in July and its recapture is being seen a step towards "de-occupying" Luhansk region from invading Russian troops.

Serhiy Gaidai, Ukrainian governor of Luhansk, issued a stark warning to Putin's troops in Telegram.

"Luhansk region is right next door. De-occupation is not far away."

Bilohorivka is a dozen miles from Lysychansk and Severdonestsk – areas that took Russian five months to conquer.

The lighting speed of Ukrainian advances has prompted Putin's goons in the occupied territories to call for urgent referenda on annexing the regions into Russia.

Luhansk and neighbouring Donetsk rebelled against Ukraine in 2014 and fought a war to separate from Kyiv and set up autonomous pro-Russian republics.

"The occupiers are clearly in a panic," President Zelensky said in a televised address late on Monday.

"The speed at which our troops are moving. The speed in restoring normal life."

It comes as Haidai also confirmed Ukraine was now in control of the east bank of the River Oskil, key position on the frontline, adding that the army's next target would be neighbouring Luhansk.

A video shared a_shtirlitz shows what appeared to be a Ukrainian tank crossing the Oskil a submerged bridge as troops in fatigues watch on the other side of the bank.

Russia's army has been almost totally pushed out of Ukraine's north-eastern Kharkiv region since Ukraine started its latest counter-offensive to regain territory.

This latest development also means Ukraine has exposed one of Moscow's key remaining supply routes.

On Saturday, there were reports Ukrainian troops had intercepted "logistics" on the key P-66 highway.

This, President Zelensky said, would pave the way for an assault on Russian forces in the eastern Donbas region.

Indeed, the Oskil flows south into the Siversky Donets river, which in turn winds through the Donbas.

The Donbas is Moscow's prized territory and the main focus of the invasion.

In the city of Izyum in eastern Ukrain's Kharkiv regione, that was recaptured last week, mass graves containing at least 450 bodies have been unearthed.

Many of the exhumated bodies show signs of torture and execution – probable tales of Russia's chaotic retreat.

A Tweet posted by Ukraine's Ministry of Defense on Sunday showed Putin’s most advanced £4.5million T-90M tank found abandoned after troops withdrew.

"The newest russian [sic] tank T-90M was found in Kharkiv region in perfect condition. We ask its owner(s) to contact the #UAarmy . Please identify yourself by a sign: a white flag," the Ukrainian Armed Forces's account tweeted.

In the south of the country, meanwhile, Ukraine has accused Moscow of shelling the Pivdennoukrayinska nuclear power plant in the Mykolaiv region early this morning.

Meanwhile, the US ambassador to Ukraine Bridget Brink told local press that Washington DC had a plan in place if Mad Vlad launched a nuke strike on Ukraine.

"We are working on this in the United States and discussing together with partners how we could act in response to those actions that would be completely unacceptable. And the President said it very clearly," she told Evropeyska Pravda.

She said President Biden had made it clear that any use of nuclear weapons would be "absolutely unacceptable" and will have "serious consequences".
