It is also stressed that the truck was moving without any additional security measures in the opposite direction from the front line, toward the border between the Ukrainian Donetsk region and Rostov region of the Russian Federation, the segment within the militant-controlled area of Donbas.
9P132 "Grad-P" ("Partizan") was previously produced in the Russian Federation, at the Kovrov mechanical plant. The activists claim that this kind of weapons will now be manufactured by "followers" of Kovrov gunsmiths in the occupied Donbass. Given the revealed manuals in Arabic, the authors of the publication hint that the weapons produced in the breakaway areas of Donbas might be delivered to the terrorists in the Middle East.
