LUCKY: Ukrainian Soldier Barely Missed By 100mm Projectile

Footage shows a lucky Ukrainian soldier being near-missed by a reported 100mm low-velocity round fired from a BMP-3. The uploader claims it was a Russian shell, but the fire team appears to be assaulting the wood line, and the projectile comes from the rear, suggesting it was fired by a friendly unit. The limited clip doesn't allow for a definitive answer.


The footage itself is incredible. The projectile passes so close to the soldier that dust can be seen flying off his uniform. Close call.
