Combat in Melitopol. Shows heavy small arms and then some sort of repeating explosive shell fire into a window; either a Grenade Launcher or some sort of AC?

Allmost certainly not an AC. The shooting sound is wrong for that. It sounds like small arms fire only. I am also not sure that the explosion are caused by the fire from the outside. It could be that we are only seeing the supressing fire put onto the building and hand grandes are used inside for room clearing.

What I am finding very disconcering is that in the few videos posted here we allready witnessed several transgressions of International Humanitarian Law. Multiple acts we see are bordering or are outright war crimes.

This is a very bad sign for the things to come IMHO since it seems the war will not be over in one or two days. The Blitz and decapitation strike obviously failed. So most likely the hostility will keep going on at this level for several more days if not weeks.

It will be interesting to see what happens.

Right now Russia is attempting a pretty limited, surgical type of strikes. Should Ukrainian resistance maintain, we could possibly see a much bigger ramp up of less descriminate artillery bombardment.

We may also see a broader increase of insurgency by the Ukranians.

And we may see more/better weapons provided to the Ukranians by NATO.
