As an informed source said, in the battles in the Donbass, Russian BMPTs more than once used Javelin anti-tank systems and other anti-tank systems and grenade launchers, massively supplied to Ukraine by Western sponsors of Kyiv. Thanks to enhanced protection, the car got off with minor damage, which was corrected in the field.
