Some sources said that could be the latest version of the Soviet-era Buk system – the modern 9K37M3 Buk-M3 surface-to-air missile system.
The Buk is a self-propelled, medium-range surface-to-air missile system. It is designed to counter cruise missiles, smart bombs, fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft, and unmanned aerial vehicles.

The missile system can execute missions independently and as part of an air-defense unit controlled by the automated control system (ACS) of the anti-aircraft missile brigade. Guidance is provided by terminal semi-active radar homing guidance system, which consists of inertial mid-course and course correction radio data link.
