Ukrainians Use WWII-Era ‘Hedgehogs’ to Disable Tanks and Military Vehicles
Russian invaders are closing in on Ukraine’s capital Kyiv, and the battle is expected to rage street to street. The Ukrainian resistance is defending their streets with a World War II-era anti-tank device called “steel hedgehogs,” which were deployed on the beaches of Normandy by Nazis on D-Day. Now the hedgehogs block city streets everywhere in Ukraine. In a heart-stopping moment, two Ukrainian soldiers defused an undetonated Russian bomb, carefully unscrewing the fuse as shells explode nearby.
