The video has been posted by a YouTube user nicknamed Denis Gilza.

“Our friends from Crimea who care about Ukraine shot the video and sent it to us. This is not a military drill!” the user writes.

The video of the convoy was taken some 50 kilometers from the city of Kerch.

The video shows five Iskander mobile missile systems moving in a convoy of military vehicles. However, it is hard to say whether the mobile systems were carrying live missiles or whether that was an act of intimidation.
