The pictures of damaged BM-21 Grad multiple rocket launchers, one of which has thinly-veiled inscription of '(For) the children of Donetsk', appeared on the forum of the Murmansk Severopost website yesterday."
The pictures were taken at the Kola railway station in the Murmansk region, which was confirmed by bloggers from the 'Political Club' forum through geographical referencing on Yandex maps.
"The forum participants assumed that these weapons were probably brought from Ukraine's Donbas, where they have received battle damage. There also were explanations which involved car accident (imagine two Grads in the same front collision) But, I personally support the first theory, much due to the fact that I observed similar inscriptions on the equipment of the battalion task force of the 200th Special Designation Brigade of the Northern Fleet in the fall of 2014 in the district of the Rostov region adjacent to the border with Ukraine (the mentioned equipment was recorded in the vicinity of the villages of Uglerodovsky, Anikin, and Gukovo in the Rostov region, as well as allegedly directly near the city of Krasnodon in Ukraine)," Komakhidze wrote.
