This was at the beginning of the war. Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine, was bombed every day. In the middle of the city, sabotage and reconnaissance groups of Russian invaders were active. Ukraine was shocked by the sudden war. The enemy stated that he would capture Kyiv in three days! In just three days!
The attack on Kyiv was from different directions, but the largest from the northwest. There their way passed through the town of Hostomel. The Russian army sent elite units of its army to the town. The most brutal and bloodiest unit was the Kadyrovtses. Their column of death stretched for 25 miles! This army is terrified even in Russia. But not Ukrainians!
This is where the story of The brave tank begins! When a huge column of Kadyrovtses drove into the town of Hostomel, their path was stopped by The brave tank! An unequal battle has begun! One hour passed, the second, the third, the fourth, the fifth, and our tank was still defending its hometown and the whole of Ukraine. Enemy vehicles burned one after another. And here, already the sixth armored personnel carrier of the enemy is destroyed! The battle continued, the barrel of the tank was even covered with dents from enemy bullets, the crew showed superhuman strength, courage and dexterity. But the battle was noticeable, the damage to the tank did not allow him to move deftly and he was forced to stop. Time passed and the enemy was able to hit a standing target…
Everyone thought that the crew had died heroically. Pain and sorrow gripped the hearts of Ukrainians. But what happened? The crew of the tank, hoping to fix it, went for a repair kit. They all survived! Despite the three days declared by the enemy to capture Kyiv, the Ukrainians withstood the onslaught of the enemy! The crew of The brave tank showed what Ukrainians are capable of defending their homeland!
Years and centuries will pass. I believe that humanity will learn to live in peace. Only the symbols of the war, realized in photos, movies, postage stamps, will remain. This stamp, photos, paintings, key chains will carry the eternal memory of the heroes who fought for peace and Freedom in the World!
