Separatists (Russian Thugs and Putins Scum) Claim To Have Captured Ukrainian SSBMs

Russia's LifeNews (which is suspected of close ties to state security services) reports that separatist fighters have told them that they have captured Tochka-U ballistic missiles from Ukrainian forces.

Their report says that Vladimir Kononov, the 'defence minister' of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic (DNR) told them that separatist fighters have now captured two Tochka launchers with ballistic missiles.

It was claimed that one system was captured following the separatist retaking of the strategically important Saur-Mogila kurgan, and another in Ilovaisk.

We have not seen reports of these seizures outside of Russian or separatist media and the possibility remains that the reports may be fabricated to provide the cover of plausible deniability for Russian deployment of such weapons.
