TOS-1 Buratino is a heavy flamethrower mounted on a T-72 tank chassis. The total weight of this equipment is about 40 tons... It launches rockets at range from 400 meters to 4.5 kilometers," Lysenko said.

"The combat system has certain drawbacks because it is not too maneuverable. Another similar vehicle but with a crane is required to charge it," he said.

"It is impossible to charge it manually - you need to have a special vehicle in the form of a similar tank. God be thanked that this equipment was used unsuccessfully by our enemies yesterday - our soldiers were not injured," the ATO speaker said.

According to him, it is known that this equipment came from the Russian Federation.

"The Ukrainian Army does not have such equipment at service," Lysenko confirmed.
