As tensions reach a fever pitch on the Ukrainian-Russian border, local troops are looking for any way possible to relieve the pressure. Sometimes, that takes the form of completely taking out any random billboard with the nearest tank on hand. Like a loon.

A vote, of dubious provenance, is scheduled for tomorrow on the future of the southern and eastern parts of Ukraine, and Ukrainian forces are currently attempting to re-take a number of cities from Russian-backed forces. The video description says that this was shot in the city of Mariupol, a Ukrainian city near the border with Russia, so the random billboard destruction may have something to do with that.


On the other hand, it seems to be the only billboard on a stretch filled with them that looks completely blank.

Though that's not the weirdest part. That designation belongs to the fact that the driver seems to keep going, albeit not without some sort of reaction.

But if I saw a tank just randomly crushing things, I might not want to continue my journey as usual. That's just me. Just saying.
