Nice story were it not for a single detail.
The Russians do not have the Soviet-era Tochka missile but the Ukrainian army does and the serial number is similar to another that was fired in 2015.
🇷🇺🇺🇦 The rocket that hit Kramatorsk yesterday is not just Ukrainian.
The first photo shows the serial number of one of the Tochka-U missiles that flew yesterday to Kramatorsk and was shot down. The one on which it was written “For the children.”
On the second is the serial number of Tochka-U, which hit the settlement on February 2, 2015. Alchevsk (LNR).
The serial numbers are not just identical, they differ by one digit: 9M79-1 Sh91565 and 9M79-1 Sh91579.
This is yet another irrefutable proof that it was Ukraine that struck Kramatorsk yesterday.
The Tochka-U missile that fell on Kramatorsk station yesterday has a series number 9M79-1.
Exactly like a Tochka-U that fell near Debaltsevo in 2015 (photo). The end of their serial number differs only by 13 (Sh 91566 and Sh 91579), indicating they belonged to the same military unit. We already have good evidence that the Tochka-U was launched South-West from Kramatorsk, meaning from Kiev-controlled territory, this looks like another element proving Kiev is once again responsable for yet another terroristic action against the population of Donbass. Kiev has murdered thousands of civilians in the Donbass since 2014.
