The movement of Russian military equipment has been recorded in Mariupol, a southern Ukrainian port city temporarily occupied by Russian troops.

Petro Andriushchenko, an adviser to Mariupol’s mayor, said this in a Telegram post, Ukrinform reports.

“Mariupol. We record the movement of military equipment. 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,” he said.

Between February 24 and August 10, Ukraine’s Armed Forces eliminated about 42,800 Russian troops, including 160 in the past day alone.
