That’s reportedly a Russian BM-21 Grad mobile rocket launcher firing at Ukraine. Do we have any Russian or Ukrainian speakers to translate?

Woot! Watch that Grad whack!

Yep.

Gukovo is at the Ukrainian border, right?
If that is the case (and the guy is saying he is from Siberia), somebody is shooting Grads at somebody in/near Ukraine.

For completeness, his first sentence is "look what fun is in Gukovo town!"

Nope. That's some kind of artillery rocket launcher. SAMs fire maybe three missiles at a time, if that.

Um... that's what the Grad is -- rocket artillery, not SAM.

Damn. I was just going to say I caught that, but you caught me. My bad.

Heh. Heck of a way to start the internet day, huh?

Anyway, when I should have said in the post is that either the Russians are firing on Ukrainian positions from Russia, or the "rebels" have been given even more advanced weapons.

Either way, sucks to be Ukraine right now.

And yet, Kyiv last week looked slightly more tranquil than its usual pre-war self: lots of people on countryside vacations, all bars are open (but not crowded because of #1), families strolling out in the parks, very little police in evidence, no armed patrols whatsoever. Oh, and spoken Russian language is just as prevalent as it has ever been.

Contrast that with Netherlands where SMG-armed military police seem to be a fixture at Schiphol and Amsterdam Centraal... go figure.
