Moment Ukrainian ‘death ray’ weapon annihilates Russian soldiers as they roam a field
- WARNING: DISTRESSING CONTENT: Footage captures the moment Russian soldiers were wiped out by Ukrainians firing anti-tank weapons at them
- Soldiers are seen walking through a field before three explosions kill them instantly
- People online have speculated that the Stugna-P anti-tank missile shooter was used
Shocking footage has captured the moment a group of Russian soldiers were hit by an insane ‘death ray’ weapon as they walked through a field.
In the video, a group of Russian soldiers can be seen walking through a field containing exploded mines. But moments later, many are killed and others seriously injured in an explosion by Ukrainian troops.
Footage shows the weapon, believed to be a Ukrainian anti-tank missile launcher, smashed through the unit of soldiers, leaving a cloud of smoke behind.
The weapon, called Stugna-P, has extreme precision and can penetrate up to 800 mm in thickness. It is laser guided and has a range of up to 5km and is believed to have been widely used by Ukrainian soldiers in the ongoing battle with Vladimir Putin’s troops.

Footage shows Russian soldiers rushing into the field to help those who have been hit. But moments later, they are hit by a second explosion as they carry the dead across the field.
They then begin to flee the field, before being shot a third and final time.
Footage then shows them laying on the ground which is laden with black dots where mines have already exploded.
Many people have taken to social media to try to deduce which weapon was used.
“TOW’s Stugna-P would be my guess,” one wrote. “These systems are usually reserved for armored vehicles.”
A TOW (Tube-launched, Optically tracked, Wire-guided’) is an American anti-tank missile. They were notably used during the war in Afghanistan in the early 2000s.
Another speculated that “maybe a Stugna-P” was used, adding that it was “a bit of a stretch to use HEAT missiles”.
HEAT (High Explosive Anti Tank) missiles are shaped explosives designed to penetrate heavy armor and, once embedded, explode. These warheads were developed during World War II.
Others have suggested it could have been a Bayraktar, an unmanned drone made in Turkey.
The latest video comes just weeks after more than 100 Russian soldiers were wiped out in a missile strike.
Using a Tochka-U missile, a weapon specially designed to hit smaller targets deep within enemy defences, Ukraine was able to use a single explosion to kill Russian soldiers.
Elsewhere, three people were killed and six injured on Sunday when Russian missiles fired on Kherson which damaged a hospital and a school, the regional administration said.

A total of three shots were fired at the Russian soldiers crossing a field
Strikes were also reported in Ukraine’s second city, Kharkiv, in which an elderly woman was killed according to regional governor Oleh Synehubov.
More missiles struck today and footage from Kharkiv showed firefighters desperately trying to douse flames amid the rubble of demolished buildings.
Russian troops had occupied Kherson soon after Moscow invaded Ukraine in February 2022 and held the city until Ukrainian forces recaptured it in November.
Since its liberation, the city has been regularly bombarded from Russian positions across the Dnipro River.
