I must admit I had some doubts. But considering the other footage out there (https://www.reddit.com/r/CombatFootage/), the timing, the source's youtube history, and that the Armenians wouldn't have resources to spare to assist a media organization at this specific time, it seems pretty solid to me.
I mean, would you want to be promoting to the world that your defensive positions are sand-filled tires and PET soda bottles (deadly serious, have a close look!), and that your anti-drone capabilities are often just AK assault rifles?
Is it just me, or do the troops seem a bit befuddled and not too stressed? Not sure if this is actual combat footage or more of a staged thing for the camera.
Yes, this looks more real to me.After shell hits, the sound of falling debris and clumps can be heared. Too careful work for propaganda.
I held same opinion until 2014 when I saw many videos from Donbass. They really whistle.
