According to the Russian Centre for the Reconciliation of Opposing Sides in the Syrian Arab Republic, dozens of thousands of refugees in the south of the country are deprived of humanitarian aid due to the fact that American military base in at-Tanfa has 55 kilometers restricted zone radius.

The Center for the Reconciliation classified such actions as a gross violation of international law and a war crime.

One round covers an area of 4 hectares, «burning» the territory with excessive pressure and fire, suffocating the opponents. Drones are used as «navigators» of these systems. «Buratino» is not a long-range weapon, its range of fire is from 3.5 to 6 km.
