Armoured personnel carriers (APC), one bearing the Russian flag, were seen in Slovyansk, east Ukraine, on April 16. Unconfirmed reports suggested Ukrainian troops passed control of the vehicles to armed pro-Russia separatists in Kramatorsk, about 10 kilometres south of Slovyansk. This video shows men in military fatigues standing guard as an APC performs driving tricks. An APC in the background is seen carrying the Russian flag.
The vehicle making the driving performance in this video bears the number ‘813’, which is also seen in this video, at about 0.33. Credit: YouTube/Graham Phillips
