A Russian tank drove to a NATO country. Residents and guests of the capital of the Netherlands can see the T-72B with their own eyes. The 44-ton combat vehicle is in the center of Amsterdam, but there is a nuance.
What is known
Everyone can look at the destroyed tank on Leidseplein. The T-72B was put up there on Thursday evening. The combat vehicle symbolizes the “fragility and resilience of democracy” in Europe.
The tank will remain on the square until June 4th. It is worth noting that at the end of March, the combat vehicle was exhibited in front of the Museum of Freedom in Groesbek, and a month earlier, residents and guests of Berlin could look at the T-72B.
This tank was destroyed by the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Kyiv region in March last year. Since February 24, 2022, the Russian army has lost at least 273 T-72B units. Some tanks were captured by Ukrainian soldiers.
