Allegations of a car bomb and unfounded claims of an impending attack by Ukrainian forces have increased tensions in parts of Ukraine held by pro-Russian separatists. . The New York Times collected footage of the day to analyze several of the claims:
Russian-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine made unverified claims that Ukraine used explosives to target the vehicle of one of their military leaders on Friday. Footage filmed by pro-Russian media at the scene shows the vehicle damaged in the flames.
Earlier, on Friday, separatist leaders warned of an impending attack by Ukrainian forces – an allegation without evidence and which Ukraine denies.
Civilians have been called to evacuate, recorded on lines forming cameras at gas stations and ATMs, and appear to be fleeing the area.
Just after midnight on Saturday, verified footage showed another possible explosion, this time in Luhansk.
