(Extended) Cluster Munitions Hit Russian Tank, Troops Dismount

This helmet cam was initially thought to show the perspective of a Russian tanker in a turret somewhere in the Kreminna forest, Ukraine. However, newly released extended footage provides more information and a different situation.


The soldiers, initially thought to be tank crew, actually appear to be infantry riding atop the tank, which they are forced to dismount. They flee into the woods, though there doesn't seem to be any indication regarding the fate of the tanks or their crews. The cameraman brings attention to the fact hat one of their group, named Uho, was hit in the strike. They shelter in what appear to be trenches, discussing Uho's injuries and how badly things are going. At 03:46, the cameraman realizes he was hit by shrapnel as well, in the face. Further discussion reveals that the Russians didn't even make it out of their own positions before the cluster strike, hence the trenches. At the end of the video, the cameraman, who appears to be the squad's leader, or possibly the medic, locates Uho and begins ascertaining his condition.
