Moment bomb from Ukrainian drone flies through sunroof of Russian soldiers' vehicle sending them fleeing in terror
DRAMATIC footage shows the moment a bomb from a Ukrainian drone flies through the sunroof of a Russian vehicle sending soldiers running for their lives.
In the clip, the bomb can be seen in the air, plummeting towards the target and falling directly into the vehicle.
It then explodes, sending smoke up the sky as terrified Russian troops are fleeing the scene.
It is unclear where the attack took place.
The video was shared on Twitter by government advisor Anton Gerashchenko who said the hit was executed by soldiers from Ukraine's 92nd brigade.
Last week another drone strike from what was believed to be Ukraine's 503rd Naval Infantry Battalion, destroyed two Russian tanks.

Throughout the war, Ukrainian fighters have been using relatively cheap drones to cause havoc with Russia.
Videos shared online show Ukraine's popular weapon the Bayraktar TB2 destroying Russian missile launchers on the ground.
It is a small Turkish-made unmanned vehicle that has become something of a favourite, despite being quite basic compared to other tech.

The unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are thought to cost about $5million (£3.8million), far cheaper than Israel's Heron at $10million (£7.6m), and US drones for about $20million (£15.3m).
Apart from their low cost, they are also smaller and slower but as it turns out quite successful.
Ukraine is known for using relatively simple equipment to fight Putin's army since the beginning of the invasion.
Back in March, a squad of amateur drone users claimed they managed to destroy Russia's 40-mile infamous "death convoy" of tanks and armoured vehicles in a series of ambushes.
Volunteer experts from specialist air reconnaissance unit Aerorozvidka used drones with thermal image cameras or those capable of dropping small bombs as well as sniper rifles to attack Russian troops.

The group's commander Lt Col Yaroslav Honchar said an ambush near the town of Ivankiv helped to halt the massive Russian operation during the first days of the Ukraine invasion.
The special IT force used quad bikes to approach the column at night, and attacked its supply depot to prevent the Russians from advancing.
