Large Convoy in Novorossiysk, Russia, At Least 20 Armored Vehicles
5 years
DNR Claims Encircled Ukrainian Troops Fired from Debaltsevo, and Return Fire

A large military convoy of more than 20 armored vehicles has been spotted outside Novorossiysk in Russia.

Novorossiysk is key southern port in Russia. It is about 530 kilometers from the Ukrainian border and therefore isn't an immediate threat, but is typical of the type of convoys that drive around the border area and are available if needed.

The video was uploaded February 14, 2015 and does not appear in reverse image search.

It has been geolocated here by the sign for "Rayevskaya 0.5" kilometers.

At 4:17 the sign is visible (made black and white for contrast).

UPDATE: Despite a previous report from a reader that this convoy may contain Buratinos, we have established that the convoy contains armored recovery vehicles:

Buratinos were reported to have been first used in Ukraine in the battle for the Donetsk Airport. These vehicles in Novorossiysk are not Buratinos.
