Russian missiles filmed heading towards Ukraine border – terrifying footage

0


The systems are believed to be Russian-made S-400 missile systems, which is considered one of the most advanced missile systems in the world. The footage was captured in the Voronezh Oblast region which borders the Luhansk region of Ukraine. Recent days have seen a massive uptick in Russian military presence on the Ukrainian border as the international community condemns Russian aggression.

Kiev and Moscow have blamed each other in recent weeks for a spike in violence in the eastern Donbass region, where tensions have risen between Ukrainian troops and Russian-backed separatist forces. 

And last week Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said he was “gravely concerned” at the situation.

While US President Joe Biden lent support to Ukraine’s leader Volodymyr Zelenskiy during a 50-minute phone call on Friday.

Despite the multiple accounts of a heavy Russian military presence, Russian President Putin said “humanitarian aid” was being delivered to the region which he described as being caught up in an internal conflict.

Earlier terrifying footage emerged showed a massive convoy of armoured vehicles and trucks amongst traffic near the city of Krasnodar in southern Russia heading towards the Ukrainian border.

Tanks, armoured vehicles and other heavy military equipment have also been filmed being transported on trains towards the Ukrainian Donbass region, where Russia supports separatist fighters in the war which started in March 2014.

While other footage from open source website Bellingcat shows a pack of Russian helicopters circling the skies above Crimea.

Speaking on Friday, Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba told the BBC Russian troops were massing at Ukraine’s northern and eastern borders, as well as “in the illegally occupied Crimea”.

Mr Raab added: “We are gravely concerned about Russian military activity which threatens Ukraine.”

While Ukrainian leader Zelenskiy spoke encouragingly of his discussion with President Biden.

He said: “President Biden assured me that Ukraine will never be left alone against Russia’s aggression.”

The war in the Donbass between Russian backed separatist fighters and the Ukrainian armed forces has killed 14,000 people in seven years according to Ukrainian figures.
