It missed the street, where they have hided in the forest by likely 100 m.
Like many comments say in the link, other then the first near hit, they completely missed them. Yet the russians post the vid to make it look like they got some successful ops going.
It is always hard to say, what and where the shrapnel's will end up and whom/what they hit where. There were no secondary explosions, no fire after the MLRS bombardment, but we can not see, if the trucks with the howitzers where still on the first road in the forest at the lower left end (in the video) or had driver further in the forest or even turned there right. There is also a small road in this forest, where the MLRS bombardment had hit. So if they have moved further into the forest and turned right....Then they could be just there, where the MLRS have hit.
This is the reason, why I am always a little bit careful, to say, they have completely missed. A shit shrapnel hitting at an unprotected part of your body (also from extended, regular non letal distance), and you will be something, which will end up in hospital or you end as hero...with 2 m soil on top of you. Or a shrapnel hits and destroys some optics, hydraulic systems or hits the computer of the gun. Or it pierces something important parts on the trucks, like the radiator of the truck or the tanks, e.g.
And than the whole group can not leave as the small roads are blocked. So in best case a delay, in worst....
