Terrorist who control some areas of Lugansk Region has posted a video of their military exercises. They were practicing shooting from tanks. On the background there are at least 4 armored vehicles that were identified as BPM-97. That is brand new model of Battle Vehicle of Russian Border Guard Service. Border Guard Service in Russia is a branch of Federal Security Service. The vehicle is known as KAMAZ 43269 “Vystrel” 4×4 wheeled mine-resistant, ambush protected (MRAP) vehicle. The modification of BPM-97 seen in Lugansk is “DOZOR-N” and it is only used in Russian Federation. That modification was specially designed for military intelligence. You can read full report on this vehicle with specs here http://rus-guns.com/dozor-n-ksar-rpm.html and another very detailed report on BPM-97 here http://twower.livejournal.com/614112.html.
