“We have managed to upgrade the equipment currently in service, to get new armaments, and to reorganize and retool the defense industries that manufacture armaments and repair hardware,” he said.
“We have also managed to regroup our forces, to carry out deep reconnaissance and to gather more information about the enemy,” Lysenko said.“We have completed the third wave of mobilization. We have replaced the units that needed that, we gave them a chance to have some rest after heavy fighting and to get back to normal,” Lysenko said.
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko presented a similar vision of the results of armistice last week. During a trip to Lviv he said that Kiev should “effectively use the ceasefire regime to reinforce defences and enhance the army’s combat readiness.”
Poroshenko said that Ukraine had shifted the economy onto the war track and was doing its utmost to make the army stronger.
