Russian Armored Column on a Drive Through the Suburbs

A Russian armored column takes a jab at the suburbs of Krasnohorivka, Donetsk, and departs. Four armored vehicles and a tank charge across open ground towards a heavily built up area. The vehicles are described by the source as BMPs with shell-type armor, but their exact identity is unknown, though the tank is unmistakable. The column charges through artillery with the tank shooting as they advance, though targets are not visible. The column then enters a built-up area with winding streets, and the tank can occasionally be seen blazing away, though it is unclear if the area through which it is moving is being actively defended. After a tour through the suburbs, the column retreats in the general direction from whence it came, spewing smoke and plowing through artillery fire. The Russian source is quite proud of the episode, though it is unclear what the effort actually accomplished. The column did not seize ground and did not spearhead an infantry assault, and it looked less like a raid and more like a tactical drive by.
