 Russia uses Uragans, Smerch, Tornado, and barbaric fire system like Buratino, Turchynov says

Pro Russian militants use powerful, modern multiple rocket launchers against the Ukrainian troops in eastern Ukraine.

This was stated by NSDC Secretary Oleksandr Turchynov in an interview to Channel 5 on Thursday night, Censor.NET reports.

"Regretfully, Russia uses modern means of fire against us, such as multiple rocket launchers, including the most powerful ones. It's not just Grad systems, but also Uragan, and more powerful Smerch, Tornado, as well as such "barbaric" fire system as Buratino," he said.

According to him, all this is used against the Ukrainian military, and they in turn have sufficient technology to counter.

"As soon as the fire begins, the batteries which opened fire are hit. We have advanced technology and equipment to do this," Turchynov said.
