You can watch the carnage unfold in the video below.

I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again for everyone. The combat footage on the ground in Ukraine is truly unlike anything we’ve seen before.

It’s like we’re watching the war play out over social media, and we’ve never really seen anything like it happen before.

The heaviest days of fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan were long before Twitter and Instagram. Yes, we saw some crazy videos from those conflicts, but that footage was usually released by news networks.

It wasn’t just tweeted out for the world to see. Yet, we’ve seen a stunning amount of footage from the war in Ukraine online. It’s truly something else.
