(GoPro) Riverine Action on the Dnipro, Ukraine

This GoPro footage captures a glimpse of Ukrainian riverine operations on the Dnipro river in Ukraine.


The video begins with the cameraman swapping from a machine gun, presumably expended, to an AK in order to continue firing from the small boat he and a partner are ostensibly using to fire on Russian positions ashore. There appears to be a cut in the footage, as at 0:17 seconds he switches to a third weapon, and the magazine previously seen stored in the side of the boat is now seen on the deck, empty. He and his partner continue to fire on the shoreline, though one imagines it's fairly difficult to hit at such a rate of speed and distance. Still, this footage gives us insight into what fighting along the Dnipro looks like.
