Near Donetsk a Ukrainian BMP has been destroyed (VIDEO)

 In the “neutral” zone, near the villages of Peski and Pervomaisk, Army fighters of the DNR found a Ukrainian BMP-2, which had been firing on on the territory of the Republic. 

[The BMP  is Боевая Машина Пехоты, i.e. “Combat vehicle, infantry.” Its 100mm canon has a range of four kilometers. –Tr.]

Soldiers of the battalion “Patriot” using a SPG-9 anti-tank rocket-propelled grenade hit the BMP, and the Ukrainian occupants fled. Recovery of the BMP-2 at the location of the unit was not possible, so the company commander decided to destroy it with a missile ATGM, which was done.
