Weapons expert Chris Cobb-Smith, who has reviewed the images and video of the aftermath, says that such a building would not have been left standing by a HIMARS strike.
“These videos don’t show a crater anywhere, the beds haven’t moved, the pillars aren’t damaged, but you can see significant fire damage. If it was a guided multiple rocket launcher, you would see craters, shattered ceilings and walls, blown up bodies,” Cobb-Smith said.
“There are almost no signs of significant blast damage on the buildings or on the bodies. Much of the damage to the roof also appears to be caused by its fall rather than by the impact of the munition trajectory or the effects of the blast.”
The researchers compared the actual impact of the HIMARS missile in Nova Kakhovka with the “impact” in Olenivka. The difference is very noticeable
In the published satellite images of the destroyed HIMARS train of Russians in Novaya Kakhovka, you can see that almost nothing is left of it
Satellite images from Yelenivka show that there is almost no external damage to the building.
The Red Cross was not allowed to visit the victims in Yelenivka
The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), says that several requests to visit the site went unanswered.
“We have not been granted access to the POWs who suffered from the attack, and we have no security guarantees to carry out this visit.”
