BM-21 “Grad” MLRS, seized from terrorists near Dobropillia city, the Donetsk region, turned to be another evidence of direct supply of the newest arms to the terrorists by Russia.

Activist John Smith posted about it on his Facebook page, Censor.NET informs.

BM-21 "Grad," seized from pro-Russian terrorists which they used while attacking Donetsk city Dobropillia, has been identified. It belongs to the 18th guard motorized rifle brigade RF.

The activist compared the picture of the seized Grad mount with the picture taken during training of the 18th guard motorized rifle brigade of RF. These systems proved to be identical. This is the evidence of arms supply from the RF to the terrorists in the Donbas or even of direct participation of Russian soldiers in battles at the territory of Ukraine.


As reported, yesterday at 6:30 a.m., checkpoint of the 93rd mechanized brigade at the entrance to the city Dobropillia, the Donetsk region was shelled by BM-21 Grad MLRS. One shell of 122 mm hit the checkpoint directly but hasn't blown up. The rest of the barrage swung out and covered a vegetable warehouse which is located 500 meters from the checkpoint. The warehouse is destroyed. Unfortunately, one civilian, the warehouse guard, has died. Another employee, a young woman, was wounded and is currently being treated in the intensive care. The terrorists started to reduce their firing positions in a hurry after they had realized to have been disclosed. The Grad crew left its machine; it was blown up with a grenade and burned down. The terrorists escaped.
