Putin’s men are spotted stealing a WASHING MACHINE from a Ukrainian home
Two Russian soldiers were spotted looting a washing machine from a house in Ukraine before loading it onto a military vehicle with a large white “Z” on it.
The aerial footage, filmed by a Ukrainian drone, shows two of Vladimir Putin’s soldiers clumsily carrying the device out of the house and across a debris-covered front yard before stopping when they reach the gate to the property.
After a brief pause to catch their breath, they are seen taking the washing machine through a gate before switching sides and carrying it down a dirt track leading back to their military vehicle.
Pictured: Two Russian soldiers were spotted in aerial footage looting a washing machine from a home in Ukraine before loading it into a military vehicle with a large white ‘Z’ on it.
Although mostly hidden under a tree, the large white “Z” can still be clearly seen in the footage, showing the vehicle belongs to the Moscow Armed Forces.
The “Z” is one of the symbols, along with the letters “V” and “O” seen on many Russian military vehicles participating in the invasion of Ukraine.
Since it is not in the Russian alphabet, it has also become a war symbol in the country and is used by the Kremlin in propaganda.
The two soldiers are then seen loading the washing machine into the vehicle before returning to the house – again back through the gate and across the lawn when the footage ends.
One side of the large house they appear to be looting was badly damaged, probably by an explosion caused by Russian artillery.
The garden at the side of the house is covered in debris while one of the windows and part of the roof were blown away.

The images were received by the Strategic Communications Office (StratCom) of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on Friday, October 21.
It was released along with a statement on social media channels, which read: “The world’s second army – the first army of looters conducted a special operation to liberate a washing machine from its owners. Every criminal will inevitably be punished.’
The images and explanations were also shared by the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
The footage was also shared on Reddit, where netizens joked that the Russian soldiers had apparently never seen a washing machine before.
Several reports from Ukraine reported Russian soldiers looting houses.
Pavel Filatiev, a Russian paratrooper who defected from his homeland and wrote a memoir of his time fighting in Ukraine, revealed his company was so desperate for groceries that they raided a local supermarket.
In May 2022, The Moscow Times reported that at least 58 tons of looted goods from Ukraine had been sent back to Russia by a group of soldiers.
There are also reports of Russian soldiers looting Ukrainian museums.
