War in Ukraine


BBC News asked Nick Reynolds, a military expert from the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI), to examine this part of the footage. "It looks similar to the way that Ukrainian SOF [special forces] camouflage their assault rifles," he told us, "but the weapon looks subtly different to any that I've seen." He also pointed out that both sides have captured weapons from each other so it is difficult to be definitive about the gun.
