Russia has started moving an armoured fighting vehicle nicknamed the "Terminator" around a Ukrainian city which shows their "determination" to capture the area, a military expert has told Sky News.

Russia is reported to be "bringing them in around Severodonetsk" in Ukraine - showing its "determination to assault that city".

The BMPT-72 was developed by Russian machine company Uralvagonzavod and was built on the chassis of the T-72 battle tank.

It can carry heavy force during any assault as well as increase the success of a tank operation.

The vehicle has an unmanned turret armed with four launchers and can engage with other tanks and artillery, including low-flying helicopters.

I Call Bull: In other news some Eastern propaganda, this thing has never actually seen battle and they only have 9 of these that were built originally in 2005 then upgraded in 2013!

Just looks like a regular tank with a tough name thrown on it.

A tank with lots of guns on it is still as susceptible to a single missile strike as any other so I don't get the 'Terminator' moniker here
