The Ukrainian Army recorded what looks like a ceasefire violation on Thursday that resulted in the destruction of a separatist infantry fighting vehicle. The video was published by the press center of Ukraine's Army HQ in Facebook.

The incident took place near the city of Dokuchayevsk, just south of Donetsk, the capital of the self-declared Donetsk Peoples Republic. Video shows a guided anti-tank missile hit a vehicle while artillery strikes land in the area.

"An enemy infantry fighting vehicle has been destroyed near the occupied town of Dokuchayevsk thanks to the skills of servicemen from the 'Mospyne' tactical group of the United Forces," the message says.
