Ukraine Says Intercepted Phone Call Proves Rebels Killed Dozens of Civilians

UPDATED: Earlier today we posted video which was reportedly taken in the  town of Sukhodolsk and reportedly shows Russian vehicles, towing guns which look exactly like the ones spotted on the Russian side of the border yesterday, toward the city of Lugansk. The blogger for Ukraine at War has been looking at the video as well, and has helped geolocate it. According to him, that video was taken here (map):

In the video there is a square building on the left:

To the right the poles, the houses on the other side of the street, and the open space between the trees all seem to match perfectly, as does the small change in direction of the fence on the other side of the road:

A local news website also places this video in the same area, almost exactly.

There is a small problem, however. The small building where the green arrow does not appear on either Google's or Yandex's satellite images:

The Ukraine At War blogger was also noticing this, but believes that the building may be newer than the satellite images. This has happened before in recent geolocation exercises as well. Still, with the rest of the geolocation and Informator.lg.ua,  a local newspaper both suggesting that this is the location of the video, this is the best theory we have at the moment.

This would suggest that these trucks are Russian military hardware and crossed the border sometime last night or this morning.

UPDATE: It does seem that the new part of the building is visible in Google:
