500 танков и сотни боевых машин: Россия стянула на Донбасс технику

Along the Ukrainian-Russian border, Russia has placed more than 87 thousand of its military. This was at a meeting of the UN security Council said the Chairman of the Permanent mission of Ukraine to the United Nations Volodymyr Yelchenko, reports “UKRINFORM”.

As of February 2019 in the Donbas posted 496 main Russian battle tanks (it can be compared with the arsenals of countries such as Germany, France, or Indonesia), 938 armoured fighting vehicles of the Russian Federation (similar to Peru and Kuwait), 128 Russian jet systems of volley fire (a little less than in Indonesia), 776 Russian artillery systems, including self-propelled artillery (as in Kazakhstan and Ethiopia). In total, the Donbass concentrated 2238 units of Russian equipment.

“The Russian side offers a very selective approach to the implementation of the Minsk agreements. However, it completely ignores its own commitments in the sphere of security and humanitarian spheres”, – said Yelchenko.
