A wino from Murmansk was so desperate for another drink that he stole a Soviet-era M-1970 multi-purpose amphibious auxiliary armored track vehicle and drove it through the glass window of his local supermarket.
Before reaching the supermarket, the drunk man crashed into an unattended Daewoo parked nearby.
After shattering the windows, the man climbed out of the armored vehicle and walked into the store. The Daily Mail reports he stole a bottle of red wine from Crimea, the Black Sea peninsula annexed by Vladimir Putin in 2014.
He fled the scene on foot, but was quickly apprehended by police. The M-1970 was later returned to the local military training depot.
Footage of the tank’s removal was recorded and shared online yesterday along with photographs from the scene.
