During an offensive operation, the Ukrainian Armed Forces (ZSU) gained control over a Russian T-90M tank dubbed 'Proryv,' or 'Breakthrough,' the press service of the ZSU’s Strategic Communications Department (Stratcom) said on Telegram on Dec. 5.

The T-90M is Russia's best active tank at the moment.

“But now, just as before, they don’t know how to use all of it, so they willingly supply the necessary weapons for the Armed Forces,” Stratcrom wrote.

“Now this tank will as willingly destroy (them).”

There is no information yet on where exactly the tank was seized.
