Rodkin estimates Ukrainian army forces at 340 thousand servicemen and around one thousand armored vehicles. “In an extreme situation if Ukrainian army reinforces its military units we may pass to a guerrilla war,” he noted, adding that the Donetsk People’s Republic “needs peace badly.” “We are ready to discuss ceasefire to stop murders of civilians and destruction of the infrastructure,” he added.
