Oct. 5, at around 8:35 p.m., residents of the occupied Donetsk were startled by an explosion causing car alarms go off. According to locals, overall of three powerful explosions were recorded.
Militants' reports note that Russian occupation forces allegedly shot down a Ukrainian drone using their air-defense systems.
At that, no photo proofs of the hit drone have been presented, but the pictures of missiles' parts that, according to a source, were detected in the Kuibyshevskyi district of the city, have been released.

Other pictures of missile parts found in the territory of the Donetsk Metallurgical Plant also appeared on the Internet.
The InformNapalm team has had a number of consultations with military experts, most of them recognizing remnants of a 9M330 Tor system missile (GRAU index: 9K330, NATO reporting name: SA-15 "Gauntlet") on the images.
As reported, in January 2015, the InformNapalm team analyzed a video and identified movement of a Russian 9K332 Tor-M2 missile system in Shakhtarsk (Donetsk region, Ukraine), controlled by Russian-terrorist forces.
Due to Russia's propaganda negligence and desire to demonstrate evidence of downing a Ukrainian drone, InformNapalm volunteers got another proof of Russia's supplying modern weaponry and equipment to "DPR" militants. It also should not be ruled out that the air-defense systems could be operated by active Russian servicemen, not local mercenaries.
Presence of Tor missile system in the Donbas is in the TOP-10 military hardware used in Russia's aggression against Ukraine.
