“Good trophies have been seized in the ‘southern cauldron.’ Exact numbers are not yet available but sources give the figure of about 67 pieces of the armor,” the news agency said in a statement.
The east Ukraine militias now have “lots of tanks, 18 Grad multiple launch rocket systems, armed personnel carriers, howitzers, portable air defense missile systems, infantry fighting vehicles and airborne combat vehicles. Most of the materiel has been put into operation while the other part has been sent for repairs,” the Novorossiya news agency reported.
ITAR-TASS has not yet received the confirmation of this information from other sources.
During the military operation, Kiev has used armored vehicles, heavy artillery and attack aviation. Many buildings have been destroyed and tens of thousands of people have had to flee Ukraine’s embattled east.
