Horrifying drone footage appears to show Russian soldiers gunning down an unarmed Ukrainian motorist with their hands raised – while a woman and child look on.
the footage, received from the German broadcaster ZDFshows a line of cars suddenly making a U-turn after seeing soldiers emerge from a tank parked at the edge of a freeway, heading towards the heart of the capital Kyiv.
As the other cars speed away, a small silver one pulls up instead in front of another car that already appears to be driving with bullets and open doors, ZDF noted.
The driver gets out and runs around his car with his hands clearly raised – only to collapse within seconds, clutching his chest.
The heavily armed soldiers – with white ribbons that identify them as Russians, according to ZDF – then run towards the car, where the driver lies on the ground.
They can be seen pulling a woman and child from the car, ZDF said – before callously dragging the body to the curb and leaving it in plain sight.
The woman and the child were led into a forest – although the drone material did not record what happened to them, ZDF said. However, it did show the troops setting the car on fire, the broadcaster said.
ZDF’s Arndt Ginzel tracked down the Ukrainian volunteer fighter who shot the footage – and said the timestamp and geo-tracking information all appeared to confirm the authenticity.
Drone operator Zanoza, a member of the Bugatti Company volunteer group, said he filmed the Russian tank last Monday as part of his job tracking the invading forces. movements towards the capital.
The cars were on their way to the heart of the city when they saw the tank just after 2 p.m., Zanoza said, confirming that the troops and tank had all the markings confirming they were Russians.
