First hand account of Russian irregulars using kidnapped baby as cover while spotting artillery.

A man, woman, and three-year-old child drove through a blockpost on a motorcycle with a side car. Moments later, they were attacked by accurate mortar (artillery?) fire. (I’m not sure whether it was mortar or artillery.)

They were able to detain the motorcycle and discovered that they were artillery spotters and that the child wasn’t theirs. It seems they kidnapped a child, perhaps from an orphanage, to use as cover.

The young fighter telling me this (he just turned 19), said the baby looked like it had been drugged.
