    Looks like a kind of optic without an external cover. You can see multiple lenses, which probably would use mirrors on the "cover" to create the optic. HUD's don't have multiple lenses.

    According to NATO there are 1,000 Russian soldiers in Ukraine.  According to the NGO Soldiers' Mothers it is over 15,000.
    Both are lying and get their lies straight.   It is true that there are several thousand volunteers from Russia.  Maybe some of
    them are soldiers.   But that does not constitute a Russian invasion.   There are Poles fighting for the Kiev regime and they
    are military or ex-military.   Does that mean that Poland has invaded Ukraine?

    It isn't a HUD anyway... Just an optic of some sort. It looks typical at that, so I doubt it came from Russia.

    Can you provide a link to Thales equipment in T-72s?  I can only find references to the Thales "Catharine" FC and XP thermal target sight system in T-90s.

    There are links on the web which have images of what it looks like inside the turret.  This T-72 has some other system.

    The so-called violation of "international law" by Russia giving support to the rebels and the so-called territorial integrity of Ukraine is a crock.

    The International Court of Justice at the Hague has ruled that the 2008 Kosovo secession was legal even though there was no referendum. The ruling means that self-determination rights trump national borders. The people of Donetsk and Lugansk voted to secede and that is that. Obama brazenly lied that there was a UN-organized referendum in Kosovo. The US and the EU routinely claim that Kosovo was a special case. This is all total nonsense. There are no special people with special rights. All humans on this planet have equal rights.

    So if Russia sends tanks, MLRS systems and anything else to the Donbas, then it is not violating international law. It is the Kiev regime that is violating humanitarian and international law with its suppression campaign. Randomly shelling civilians is a war crime. BTW, the rebels do not operate their MLRS and artillery from population points. But I have seen video where it is clear that the Kiev regime forces are stationing their tanks inside villages and daring the rebels to hit them. Basically the regime forces are baiting the rebels into collateral damage incidents.

    The irony is that the OSCE has already discredited the tired myth of "Russian transporting tanks through Ukraine", as there isn't even been a shred of evidence that supports that claim, and it's funny that people consider Thales equipment (French) and Sosna-U gunner sight (Belorussian) as something being definitive proof of being Russian origin, l also like how "Russian's are invading with tanks" with out their formidable SHORAD. Are we really supposed to believe that Tor or Tunguska would allow "Russian tanks" to be so easily destroyed by air-power as they claim? lol1 I also like how proof of Russian invasion of Ukraine is Soviet era military equipment, and Russian speaking soldiers...like those didn't exist beforehand... lol1 lol1 lol1

    Are you guys talking about that shaped piece of glass on the arm above the heavy machine gun?

    That is an old prismatic sight in Soviet service for half a century...

    Why is bought from Russia ridiculous?

    They are hardly going to go to a party and not bring a gift... doesn't mean their parents are invited...

    How about we look at the evidence that the rebels have captured trucks loaded up with Javelin and perhaps suspect NATO is playing a dirty game here... which is made worse when they openly punish the other side with little or no proof yet are clearly guilty of the very same crime... in fact it was their support for the original coup that created the mess in the first place... but they blame Russia for every thing.

    Personally I think Russia should demand these accusing western countries come up wit irrefutable evidence or Russia will open its borders to supplies and support for the Rebels.

    right now the rebels are defending their land... with better supplies and support taking Kiev might become a real option...  Twisted Evil

    Of course Russia is not that reckless... and unfortunately the West is.

    I am impressed that those poor quality videos allows you enough information to determine that these vehicles are BTR-82s and not old BTR-80As with the new 30m turret design later adopted on the BTR-82, and also the fact that these are Ukrainian rebels in the Ukraine

    I wonder if old tunnels are operational from Soviet times. Connected to the Donbass mines.. or not.

    Would be funny for Willy Wanker of the Chocolate Factory to build a giant wall along the border. And then a load of cutting edge mil tech to appear from nowhere for the Resistance ..! : D

    Well, actually Russian goverment have already "provided" the "evidences" about the so-called "Russian intervention". Laughing

    So far this is the most reliable "evidence" of "Russian intervention". Laughing

    That may not be BTR 82. Dont forget BTR-80A has similar turret and it has been around since the early 90's and hungary has them. Could be captured Ukrainian mil stock.

    As well, the tank showcased, if it was Russian, I dont think it would say Thales on it as UOMZ license produced the thermals for it. It would be written in Russian. And that is only optics, anything else, doubt so. Could be imported product or France assistance to Ukraine as they have shown to still be upgrading tanks in Kiev.

    Yet these claims have already been discredited by the OSCE, the people who keep harping about Russia providing military equipment to Rebels haven't even put 1/10,000th the effort to actually investigate the Russian/Ukraine border (in comparison to the OSCE), and are grasping straws to prove discredited and unsubstantiated supposition.
