Russian Armed Forces artillery is the main suspect in shelling Vodiane.
According to the December 8th ATO press center report, Russian terrorists grossly violated Minsk agreements’ requirements by shelling the village of Vodiane with the forbidden 152mm and 122mm caliber guns during the previous 24 hours. It is worth mentioning that images previously provided to InformNapalm international intelligence community by a volunteer aerial reconnaissance team showed at least 8 units of 2C1 122mm self-propelled howitzers of Russian occupation forces positioned in the city of Novoazovs’k no more then 17-20 km away from Vodiane.
Note that InformNapalm OSINT-experts identified regular Russian Army servicemen in the city of Novoazovs’k and its vicinity. They belonged to the following Russian Army units: 165th Artillery Brigade, 45th Separate Spetsnaz Air Assault Brigade, and an artillery unit of the 17th Motorized Rifle Brigade of the 58th Army of the Southern Military District of Russia (one of its Msta-S 152mm self-propelled howitzers was previously detected near Novoazovs’k wind power plant field).
The density of Russian Army artillery units near Mariupol suggests that the new conflict escalation, the gross violation of the Minsk agreements, and the shelling of Vodiane village with heavy armament were initiated by Russian servicemen following a direct Kremlin order.
This is not the first time the volunteer aerial reconnaissance team provides valuable information. Previously, it located one of the largest heavy weapon bases of the Russian occupation troops in Donbas.
