Ukraine's Abrams tanks burn just like any others - Kremlin --The first U.S.-supplied Ukrainian M1 Abrams has been destroyed in the conflict | 26 Feb 2024 | Any weapons supplied to Kiev "will burn," and the U.S.-made M1 Abrams tanks are no exception, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday. Peskov delivered the remark as he was reached by TASS for comment on the first-ever destruction of a Ukrainian M1 Abrams tank by Russian forces, reported earlier in the day. The vehicle was reportedly destroyed near the village of Berdychi, located to the northwest of Avdeevka, a key Donbass town liberated by the Russian military earlier this month. The development is a part of the Russian military's daily routine of "demilitarizing" Ukraine, the spokesman explained.
