Interesting 'combined arms' - UA using a military IFV/APC, backed by civilian Technicals and deployed infantry, to storm a small position. Sadly this looks to be filmed via potato.

That looks very staged to me.
There is no oposition. A single machine gun could have ruined the day of the completly expose dismounts. Same with the unprotected vehicles. Even a BTR is not exactly well protected. It also doesn't have much firepower. It would be very difficult for this "assault" to effectively supress a squad or platoon in position so they can not fight back anymore.
So, you're saying the Ukrainian government is putting out propaganda videos?
Some first pics of the stricken Moskva have appeared, showing the post-Neptune missile effects.
If the analysis is accurate, it looks like the missiles slammed right into the area near the CIWS 30mm cannons - presumably the weapons one would have hoped would have been able to protect from sea skimming cruise missiles.
??? Very difficult to believe that the Russian Navy would release photos of the stricken Moskva, and I don't know who else could have taken those photos.

Reportedly several ships, including turkish, picked up survivors from the sea.
It could also be as simple as a RU sailor with a cellphone; the pics are not especially high rez, inline with a cheap smartphone.
There are a couple other pics here as well:
Every conscript has a smartphone with them 24/7 these days... Just one person sending a picture via messanging / social media apps like Whatsapp, Telegram, Vkontakte, etc. to a friend and the picture is on the internet.
The proliferation of the cell phone camera is also a huge part of why Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) has become so powerful.
