About 20 explosions can be heard in the video posted on social media by the Russians at the location of the Triumf and its radar. At the time, the light went out in the neighbouring settlements.

Quote: "This is the second Triumf system that the SSU destroyed in the last month. The first one was hit in Yevpatoriia on 14 September.

After such ‘triumphal explosions’, the SSU advises the Russians to think about a new name for this system." 

Background: The authorities of Belgorod and Bryansk oblasts in Russia claimed that "air targets were downed" on the night of 3-4 October, saying there were no casualties or damage.
