FSB publishes edited video footage of ‘Ukrainian saboteur attack’ in the Bryansk region
The FSB has published a video of the “attack by Ukrainian saboteurs,” which the Russian authorities reported on March 2. It is the first video footage to emerge in the day since that has passed since the attack. The footage appears to be heavily edited.
The video shows two automobiles, though only one car was mentioned in the first reports of the “sabotage.” The first clip shows a Lada Riva with bullet holes in the body and broken windows. The second clip shows a Lada Niva with punctured tires but no other visible damage.
Both clips show dead bodies inside the cars. In the video featuring the Riva, shots of the body have been blurred out, and something resembling blood is visible inside the car. The Telegram channel Mozhem Obyasnit (We Can Explain) notes that the car is located in one place in the video and in another in photographs.
The Niva (which President Putin said the “saboteurs” shot up) is shown in a short video clip and two photographs. In the video, the car is on the road, but the photos show it standing in a ditch. The first photo of the car was shot from outside, the second from inside — it shows the back of a deceased person.
No Lada Riva was mentioned in previous reports of “sabotage” in Bryansk.
The FSB video also shows pictures of a landmine, a handheld anti-tank grenade launcher, and one cartridge case. However, only one of the photos shows the actual surroundings where the weapons were allegedly found. The other photos are close-ups, making it impossible to confirm whether they were taken at the scene of the reported incident.
