Destroyed Russian T-72 placed near the Russian Embassy in Berlin
On the anniversary of the Russian full-scale invasion of Ukraine, a destroyed Russian tank will be showcased in the capital of Germany.
The T-72 main battle tank of the Russian invaders, which had been destroyed in Ukraine, was brought to Berlin.
He was transported by a trailer, and around 4 a.m. on February 24 was placed near the Russian Embassy.
The photo featuring Russian equipment was published by German journalist Wieland Giebel.
This morning, the Ambassador of Ukraine to Germany, Oleksii Makeiev, also published a photo of the tank being driven on the streets of Berlin.

The destroyed Russian tank will be standing in front of the embassy throughout the weekend.
The publication Bild says that they have worked on the delivery of the tank to Berlin for several months, in particular, due to disputes with local authorities and the community.
The disputes were based on the concerns that the tank could scare people who had moved to Germany to escape the war in Syria, or could distract cyclists from the situation on the road.
However, the administrative court allowed the exhibition.
The project was initiated by German activists – museum director and journalist Enno Lenze and journalist Wieland Giebel.
Previously, the Minister of Defense of Ukraine, Oleksii Reznikov, said that Ukraine had sent the destroyed main battle tanks of the Russian army to the exhibition of the ally countries.
The tanks of the invaders burned by the Ukrainian military went to Germany, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.
