I wonder if the building the videos are being shot from is a DPR Government building? They are not being shy about showing these convoys are they.

Another video of what looks like the same convoy heading on towards the front.

Video purports to show ProRussian "Vostok" battalion near Donesk, Blasting the Blank out of a gas station for seemingly no reason... To mush ammo on there hands if you ask me, not a good sign.

Is that the LAW (Light Anti-armor Weapon) that one of them is holding? I thought they don't make those anymore? Anyway pretty reckless showboating got their ears ringing for while.

Nope still made, just not used so much for tanks any more. light weight easily packed perfect for urban combat. in 2011 the USMC contracted for 7750 units of the M72A7 Law.
now that said I doubt it's a M72. the Russians in fact cloned it not once but twice the RPG 18 and RPG22.

From a purely military perspective I am wondering what is the big deal surrounding Donetsk airport? Why does it seem to be constantly under contention?

With all the artillery barrages being traded why doesn't one side or the other just flatten the place while the other side is there? And if it is already flattened why does either side care to "control" it, or maybe occupy would be a more accurate description?
