Resident of the city Spartak Sergiyenko saw the 9K35 Strela-10 lying gracefully in the middle of the street and immediately posted photographs of the capsized machine on his Facebook page.
"How is this possible?" He wrote. "What a party it must have been."
The incident reportedly occurred due to the machine operator's mistake when he was driving Strela-10 on the platform of the tow car for transportation. It is yet unclear whether there were missiles in the launch barrel, but the ammunition didn't detonate when the system fell on the ground.
A crane truck arrived at the scene to evacuate the missile system to a military base in Chernigov. Nobody was harmed, the Inspector General told 112 Ukraine TVChannel.
Ukraine's defense department has not yet commented on the incident.
