We’ve seen the videos of the rockets landing in the downtown area of the city of Lugansk, we’ve seen the videos of the aftermath of the damage they’ve caused, now here are the videos of where these rockets came from.
An army jet, presumably an SU-25, launched an air strike on the Ukrainian city of Lugansk and fired what appears to be 4 unguided rockets from a pod. Obviously, no foreign fighter jet could have penetrated the Ukrainian airspace without the government and the military officials raising red flags so it could only have been the Ukrainian army jet on a mission green-lighted by the government.
The City Council/Ministry of Health building may have been the target, but the pilot used unguided missiles so the target was for the most part missed by about 50 meters and instead a whole bunch of unlucky civilians were killed. Not like hitting the building would have resulted in anything else. Bottom like – them Ukrainians using aviation to target civilians in populated areas with an apparent goal to lower their morale and shatter their will to resist is a war crime.
Moment of explosion is quite loud in the video. You may want to turn your speakers down, especially if you have a cat resting on your lap like I did:
Here’s another angle view of the jet firing the rockets. The cameraman then drives to the target area and films the aftermath. The rockets were launched in salvos – in the surveillance camera footage you see the multiple impacts, starting in the park on the right and ending in the administration building on the left, leaving multiple pot holes in the ground. One rocket appears to have struck the building. Video below shows firefighters running a rescue operation through the hole the rocket made:
