Russian Van Turned Inside Out Near Krynky

Footage shows the violent destruction of a Russian UAZ military van on the "left bank" of the Dnipro River in the vicinity of Krynky, in the southern Kherson region of Ukraine.


The video is edited to make it appear as if the van was destroyed by a remote controlled FPV loitering munition, however, the nature of the blast raises questions as to whether it was hit by something else.


The drone feed is significantly distorted several meters before the target, possibly from the forest disrupting the signal's line of sight with the controller. It's also possible the Russians had some sort of jammer-type electronic countermeasures in the area.


The blast itself sends a powerful jet of fire and gas away from the vehicle, and not in the direction the drone was headed, and is unlike any FPV strike result we have seen. The incident more closely resembles the effect of an anti tank projectile continuing on its path after fully penetrating its target.
