Drunk Russian Man Steals Tank And Crashes It Into Supermarket To Get More Wine

If you've ever seen those videos on YouTube of Russian people walking on ridiculously high scaffolding without any safety precautions, or bungee jumping off high rise buildings with a DIY rope, then you'll know that doing extreme things seems to just run in their blood.

 

This, however, is more extreme than most. A man enduring Arctic temperatures in Murmansk, a city in northwest Russia, was desperate for a bottle of wine. We would be, if we had to deal with temperatures like that.

What we probably wouldn't do, however, is steal a snow-covered tank from a military training organisation and then ram-raid it into the side of a supermarket in order to steal said bottle.

 

But that's exactly what an unidentified man did, smashing into a parked Daewoo car before planting the tank outside of a supermarket and grabbing a bottle of wine originating from the Crimea, an area that was annexed by Russian leader Vladimir Putin In 2014.

Quite how he got into the tank or turned it on we have no idea, as we imagine the Russian military don't just leave the keys in the ignition, but who knows? It's also quite impressive he managed to drive it and only smash one car (and a supermarket shopfront) in the process.

 

He then left the tank where it was and promptly ran off into the night but was quickly apprehended by police. Which ends this story on a bit of a damp squib, to be honest. The guy, who was apparently already drunk - you'd have to be wouldn't you? - didn't even get to enjoy his wine.

We don't imagine he'll be doing anything similar anytime soon. Because everybody's done things they wish they hadn't when they were, erm, tanked, this is probably as stupid (and amazing) as it gets. This man jumps to the head of the line for the 2018 Hold My Beer Award
