There was a message on the Russian propaganda resources and groups in the social networks on February 16, 2016, that supposedly ‘the Ukrainian army shelled Luhansk using the ‘Uragan’ [Hurricane] multiple rocket launcher system’. It is interesting that in the accompanying photos and video frames, a small crater and the head part of the rocket lying next to the crater, which with high probability can be classified as the ‘Tor’ anti-aircraft missile (AAM).
It is interesting that the version about usage of ‘Uragan’ MLRS, which the Russian propaganda architects attempted to develop, does not hold water and most of the commentators argued that these are the remains of the AAM missiles, not MLRS.
Probably, considering the weak foundation of this hastily fake, the Russian propagandists have refused the idea of further large-scale support of this version in the mass media. So, the message about ‘the shelling with Uragans’ appeared only on the ‘news front’ level resources and in the social network groups like the ‘Reports from the militia of Novorossiya’.
Note that in January of 2015 the volunteers of InformNapalm international community analyzed the video and identified the Russian ‘Tor-M2’ AAM system in Shakhtarsk (Donetsk Oblast, Ukraine), which is controlled by the united Russian-terrorist forces.
Usage of the Russian ‘Tor’ anti-aircraft missile system by the terrorists was also registered in the occupied Donetsk on October 5, 2015.
Thus, once again the Russian propaganda architects unwittingly provided evidences for the future military tribunal against the Russian leadership.
It should be recalled that the identified ‘Tor’ anti-aircraft missile systems are in the TOP-10 facts fixation of the Russian military equipment in Donbas and can serve as another proof of the Russian direct aggression against Ukraine.
