The photo evidence was published yesterday in Twitter microblog by journalists Julian Röpcke and Charles Lister. The camera captured the latest Russian electronic warfare equipment, an armored personnel carrier, covered KamAZ and Ural trucks carrying unidentified cargo, as well as heavy artillery (152-mm howitzer MSTA-B), Censor.NET reports citing 5 Channel.
One of the trucks is only partially covered, exposing Russia's soldiers inside. They are dressed in the standard dark green uniform of the Russian Armed Forces - so-called "Russian-pixel" camouflage, while some of them wear the new style "desert" colors which have recently been recorded in the occupied Crimea.
Commenting on the photos, users note: military markings are either missing or painted over similar to how it was with the Russian equipment which invaded Ukraine.
