The Channel 5 video archive at www.5tv.com.ua/video/143/5/ shows tank-tread armored personnel carriers, and artillery pieces, being loaded at the Zaporizhia-2 railway station on 23-Nov-2004 for transport to Kyiv.
Although crushing protestors under tank treads is rare in the civilized world, it does occasionally happen at the fringes. Artillery pieces turned against protestors is even rarer, and might by itself earn you a paragraph in the history books.
