Exact location where video was filmed about sending Chechens to Karabakh found

The video clip about the Chechens sent to the war in Nagorno-Karabakh was actually filmed in the Crimea, as evidenced by the bridge caught in the clip.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that a video had appeared on the Internet about the sending of natives of Chechnya to the Karabakh conflict zone. Some users claimed that the video was a fake; others argued that it was authentic.

On September 27, a full-scale fighting began in the Karabakh conflict zone. According to official data, as of October 6, 27 civilians perished in Azerbaijan; 141 others were wounded. In Nagorno-Karabakh, as of October 4, 19 civilians perished, including a child, and 80 others were wounded, the "Panorama.am" reports.

As reported by "Kavkaz.Realii", the video was filmed in the Crimea, near the village of Morskoye. This conclusion was made based on the image of the dilapidated bridge captured by the video, which is located in the area of the unfinished recreation centre located near the mentioned village.

Presumably, the video was filmed in the summer or autumn, when Russian films were shot in the Crimea.

Let us remind you that Elkhan Suleimanov, the head of the Chechen Ministry of Public Health, published a post on the Instagram in support of Azerbaijan amid the aggravation of the Karabakh conflict. Commentators offered the minister go to the front, while another group of users supported have him.
