New video from Ukraine's Azov Battalion shows destruction of buildings including an apartment complex in the southeastern city of Mariupol, as thick plumes of smoke rise in the distance.
The Azov Battalion started as a volunteer militia linked to far-right ideologies before it was incorporated into a Ukrainian National Guard unit in 2014.
CNN has geolocated and verified the authenticity of the video. It's unclear when it was filmed, but the clip was uploaded Monday to the battalion's Telegram channel.
The ultimate product of intense firefights between Ukrainian and Russian forces is clear in the video: widespread destruction.
The drone taking the video begins its flight in an industrial area in western Mariupol and moves northward toward the Epicenter K shopping center. It flies over an already destroyed apartment complex and then suddenly a large explosion is seen.
The fire-gutted remains of the Epicenter K supermarket is also seen.
The video cuts and the drone is several hundred feet further to the north near a mattress store and apartment complex.
A fire is raging in the apartment complex and toward central Mariupol and more dark plumes of smoke are seen rising.
