Footage of the Tochka-U Russian missile in Mariupol, Ukraine was shared on Twitter:
“In Mariupol, teenagers found Tochka-U.”
“It arrived at the beginning of March and did not break.”
The video was first published on Telegram by Peter Andrushchenko, advisor to the mayor of Mariupol, who stated:
“Mariupol in the eyes of children.”
“It was just a Russian Tochka-U in the middle of a baggage carrier. It arrived at the beginning of March and, luckily, did not work.”
“The missile, which was destroyed by DCNS back then, is still in its old location as a reminder of who really demolished Mariupol.”
The Tochka-U known as the SS-21 Scarab (Russian name: 9M79 “Tochka”) is a Russian-made short-range ballistic missile.
The news follows reports of Ukraine’s Air Force shooting down a Russian “Cartograph drone” in Mykolaiv, as reported on Friday, September 2.
“On November 02, at about 09:00 a.m., a Russian unmanned aerial vehicle “Cartograph”, which is part of the “Ptero” family of unmanned aerial vehicles, was halted by the airborne surface-to-air missile unit of the Forces in the skies over Mykolaiv region,” stated Ukraine’s Air Force.
