Russian Fighters Driving Armor Lost on Their Way into Donetsk
6 years
Russian State Journalist Deported for "Anti-Ukrainian Activity"

InfoReistance published a video uploaded yesterday June 30 by ActionTube titled "Russians Get Lost in Donetsk."

The video features two fighters driving armor into Donetsk and then stopping at a crossroads. The video has not appeared before, according to a search in Google.

One of the fighters has an accent in Russian that indicates he is from Russia, and not southeastern Ukraine, and the other sounds like he could be a local, but one not familiar with the area.

The first one starts swearing as he fiddles with the engine.

The second one then gets out and speaks on his cell phone (translation by The Interpreter):

"So, briefly, where the first turn-off is. Well...should we have gone to the right or straight?"

The second one then interrupts:

"We should have gone left, not right."

The first one continues:

"So, straight then, briefly,  yes? So now all the way to the end. Straight, and you pass the school, right?"

He then begins to get exasperated. "Well, the pensioners' place...Well, where is that, what do you call it, roundabout [inaudible]....?"

The second one swears:

"F***. We're lost."

The first one says to the cameraman:

"Why are you filming? This is a joke."
