“I have no right to specify the figure, but I assure you: hundreds of armoured vehicles have been moved to the front these days. And thousands of much better trained troops are now in rotation,” he said.On Monday, similar statements were made by spokesman for the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Andrei Lysenko. According to him, the ceasefire in the east of Ukraine has allowed Kiev’s security forces to regroup, optimise operation of the defence industry enterprises and complete the third mobilisation wave.
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko last week gave a similar assessment to the ceasefire results. He said during a trip to Lviv that Kiev should effectively use the ceasefire regime in order to improve the defense and boost the army’s combat effectiveness.
Poroshenko also said Ukraine is doing everything possible to make the army stronger.
