Yesterday, between 08:00 and 08:20, four tractor units loaded with S-300 systems with 'V' markings drove along Metalurhiv Avenue and Nikopolsky Avenue in the Donetsk direction. Since there is no confirmation that these systems were moved to Mariupol today, it looks like the air defense systems were moved closer to the front lines," the post reads.
