Geolocation of Tank Video in Snezhnoye


It is now certain that the second video of a T-64 tank we reported on June 12th, uploaded by Erich Hartmann, and about which NATO has now also reported as an open source indicating the presence of Russian tanks in Ukraine, was in Snezhnoye (Snizhne) in Donetsk Region, Ukraine.

A local photographer who goes by the name Serebashca on Panoramio took the photo of the bright yellow building that helped to geolocate the first video we showed of a tank.

He turns out to be the same photographer who took this photo of Saur-Mogila, the highest elevation in the area, which TV Rain called " a strategic height which enables control of the locality."

It shows a large ochre-colored building and a small, low, white building, which maps to Snezhnoye.

He also took the next photo that shows the ramp to the church clearly visible in the tank video.

These buildings can be seen clearly in the video of the T-64 tank:

Protesters Overturn Russian Embassy Cars, But Self-Defense Keeping Mob at Bay

Mayhem continued for several hours this evening outside the Russian Embassy in Kiev as protestors overturned cars, sprayed graffiti, and threw rocks.

Demonstrators publicized their demand that the Russian Embassy leave Ukraine since it has been waging an undeclared war against Ukraine for nearly four months. They vowed to remain on site until their demands were met.

But Ukrainian self-defense units were already organizing to keep protesters away from the embassy building, and crowds were starting to lessen.

Translation: this is how the RF Embassy looked behind the fence.
Translation: Firemen are dousing cars near the embassy from which gasoline had leaked. Self-defense is not allowing the crowd near the building. There are less people out now.

Protesters Attack Russian Embassy in Kiev

Reports are coming in of a demonstration in front of the Russian Embassy in Kiev that is turning violent.

Angered at the downing by Russian separatists of a Ukrainian military transport plane, killing all 49 people on board, protesters gathered at this symbol of Moscow, which has backed the separatists.

Translation: The building has been shot with paint bombs in the colors of the Ukrainian flag.

Translation: Some rational people are trying to talk the mob into stopping the pogrom. But the youth are riled up to break cars and turn hard. You didn't see that on Maidan.


Translation: During Maidan, they weren't knocking down planes with Ukrainian paratroopers using Russian Iglas.

3 Iglas Found Near Lugansk Airport -- and Russian Canned Food
Dmitry Tymchuk of Information Resistance has published an update on his Facebook page on findings at the Lugansk Airport. The Interpreter has provided a translation:

According to operational information from the group Information Resistance, three 9P3901 launching pipes from the MANPAD 9K38 Igla were found near the Lugansk Airport, which reportedly downed the ATO [anti-terrorist operation] forces' IL-76.

Two Iglas were used and one technically malfunctioned (the 9M39 missile remained in the pipe).

Empty cans of food produced at Orelproduct, Ltd. in the city of Mtsensk (Russia) were also found at the terrorists' ambush.

Russian Separatists Take Responsibility for Downing of IL-76

Russian-backed separatists in Lugansk have taken responsibility for the downing of the Ukrainian Air Force military transport plane early this morning, RIA Novosti reported.

The plane was hit by a missile fired from a MANPAD and crashed at the Lugansk Airport as it was landing, according to local news reports.

Authorities have not yet confirmed the number of soldiers who died on board, but sources within the military are saying all 49 on board were killed.
