SEVASTOPOL, March 29. /ITAR-TASS/. At Bakhchisarai railway station near Sevastopol, Russian military started loading on to railway platforms automobiles and trailers belonging to the former automobile battalion of Ukraine’s naval forces. The equipment will be shipped to Ukraine in the next two days. Forty railway platforms arrived in Sevastopol on Saturday for the purpose.
“Automobiles for the transportation of dry cargos and fuel are in the batch,” Colonel Eduard Usoltsev, representative of the transportation department of the Russian Defence Ministry, told Itar-Tass. “All equipment is dysfunctional. The less dated automobiles are of the 1991 USSR makes,” he said.
As many as 74 trucks and 13 trailers are ready for transportation. “This is about 65 percent of the total number of equipment of the former automobile battalion to be carried to Ukraine,” Usoltsev said. “The remaining equipment is on the territory of the automobile fleet and is also ready for shipment,” he added.
Personnel of the newly formed automobile battalion of the Black Sea Fleet are busy loading the equipment. Tanks, caterpillar vehicles and helicopters are being loaded to be shipped to Ukraine at a military base near Simferopol, an official in the headquarters of the Black Sea Fleet told Itar-Tass.
