Recently, the Russian Federation has intensified redeploying military equipment, weapons, and troops in the territories of occupied Donbas. This was stated by Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov.
According to him, military equipment, weapons, armaments, munitions, fuel and lubricants are imported systematically and in an orderly manner almost every day "both by motorways and railway".
"A large number of military vehicles, tanks, multiple launch rocket systems, etc. is delivered through the uncontrolled area of Ukrainian-Russian border from the territory of the Russian Federation", - he said.
Mr. Turchynov noticed that over the last three days only, a significant number of tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, light multi-purpose armored towing vehicles, "Grad" MLRSs, "Pion" 2S7 (203 mm) and "Giatsint" 2A36 (152 mm) self-propelled guns were relocated from the Russian Federation to Donbas. "Reinforcement is provided for Russian hybrid troops deployed all along the delimitation line", - he reported adding that undisguised recruitment of contractors to participate in hostilities in the east of Ukraine is conducted in Russian military commissariats.
