Video shows Ukrainian forces in Mariupol ambushing Russian military convoy

A new video posted by the Azov Battalion on Monday shows Ukrainian forces in Mariupol ambushing a Russian military convoy.

The video has geolocated and verified the authenticity of the video, but it’s unclear when the ambush occurred. The Azov Battalion is a unit that began as an ultra-nationalist militia but has since integrated into the Ukrainian armed forces.

Ukrainian forces in Mariupol

The video, taken by a drone, shows a convoy of six vehicles moving south along Metallurgists Avenue in Mariupol. The convoy pulls off the road and onto a sidewalk just outside the Ararat cafe.

As the drone zooms out, it shows at least nine Ukrainian troops creeping toward the convoy, which has stopped moving. The video then cuts to soldiers firing in the direction of the convoy.

The latest news from the Russia-Ukraine crisis moves close to 2 months since Russia invaded Ukraine.

It then cuts to another scene, in which at least three of the six vehicles are on fire. A “Z” — the symbol of the Russian invasion — can be seen on at least two of the vehicles. As the Ukrainian soldiers can be seen ambushing a Russian military convoy.

The video then shows Ukrainian soldiers throwing grenades over a brick wall, in the direction of Russian soldiers who are taking cover between one of the vehicles and a wall.

You can’t watch the full video as it is far too graphic for social media. WTX News is not airing the entire video, as it shows grenades exploding on top of the Russian soldiers.
