Mykolayiv governor Vitaliy Kim posted a video of a Tigr (Tiger) armored infantry fighting vehicle, which Russian troops in the region reportedly sold to Ukraine, in a Telegram post on Sept. 23.

The governor noted the vehicle is not in best shape – its operators reportedly had to make “repairs” with a cooking pot lid.

“That’s no matter, we’ll fix it up and send it into battle,” said Kim.

The Tigr vehicle was sold for $5,000, and the governor also said how much the Russians can expect get for other kinds of military kit:

Howitzers – $10,000.
