"What are the separatists fighting with? Rebels, some Western media call them? Here are four screen shots made by Censor.NET editor from the report of Russian Lifenews channel about the destruction of Ukrainian column breaking out of Ilovaisk in the Donetsk region.
The video allows for accurate geography pinpointing. This is a part of the 9M79-1 unit - a tactical missile complex "Tochka-U" with a range of up to 70 kilometers. The head warhead of the missile does not be separate, so it is obvious that explosion occurred in this place.
There are good reasons to argue that Russia has conducted a missile strike against our troops.
The fifth photo shows a fragment of other missile - possibly 9M51 - a 220 mm rocket of the heavy multiple rocket launcher "Uragan" with an increased power thermobaric warhead.
The picture was taken in Novosvitlivka which was defended by Ukrainian armor crewman of the 1st Tank Brigade, which inflicted heavy losses to the aggressor. During the fighting, most of the villages burnt down together with grass - the consequences of strikes by thermobaric munition. 9M51 missiles have a maximum range of 13 kilometers.
The investigation by ICAO and the government of Malaysia has confirmed that the Dutch "Boeing" was shot down from the territory of the DPR by a Zenit rocket. And this could only have been an anti-aircraft missile defense complex "Buk".
"Buki", "Tochka", "Uragan" complexes are all items of evidence of a large-scale invasion of Russian troops - these can only be military professionals. Our troops from Luhansk and Donetsk were pushed out not by the militants or rebels but by the regular army of the Russian Federation.
Photo 8 - the latest Russian APC 82A - likely neutralized by a tank shell. A small party was exported but not to Ukraine or neighboring countries.
So do not call them rebels - do not change the definitions. Ukraine is fighting against the Russian army one on one," Butusov wrote.
