Podolyak: Russia uses heaviest non-nuclear weapons against Ukraine

The Russian Federation uses the heaviest non-nuclear weapons against Ukraine.

Mykhailo Podolyak, adviser to the Head of the President's Office, wrote this on Twitter, posting a video of Russian Solntsepek flamethrower system performance, Ukrinform reports.

“This is Russian Solntsepek flamethrower system. Some partners avoid giving the necessary weapons because of fear of escalation. Escalation, really? Russia already uses the heaviest non-nuclear weapons against Ukraine, burning people alive. Maybe it's time to respond and give us MLRS?” Podolyak posted on Twitter.

TOS-1 (heavy flamethrower system) Buratino is a Russian 220mm multiple rocket launcher capable of using thermobaric warheads, mounted on a T-72 tank chassis. In 2001, the Russian army adopted an improved system TOS-1A Solntsepek.
