Terrorists fire rockets in Donetsk hiding behind residential building. Video and detailed analysis.

Today at 15:50 local time pro-Russian terrorists of Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) were firing rickets from GRAD (multiple rocket launcher system) hiding behind residential area of Donetsk. The local guy who took the video was located in Maksyma Kozyrya St, 41. The position of terrorists was behind Maksyma Kozyrya St, 47.

On the picture below you can see that there are 2 trees in front of operator and they are identical to the trees you see on Google map. Building #45 is a little closer to the operator and is next to building #47. You can also see where the rockets fire from and make a line that can tell you the trajectory. Another indicator is the sun position. The sunset in Donetsk starts at 15:38 and 16:14 it is already dark. So 15:50 is twilight time. And you can understand where the West is as the sky will be brighter there. In the video the right side of the sky is brighter and that’s Western direction on the map that perfectly match the video.

The distance from the fire location to the Ukrainian Army positions at Pisky is about 13 km. The rockets fire range of BM-21 GRAD used by terrorists is about 20 km, so they fired at higher angle to make the distance shorter.
