KIEV, October 16. /TASS/. The Kiev authorities started restoring armored vehicles damaged in a military operation in east Ukraine at civilian enterprises. In particular, machines are being restored at a locomotive-repairing plant in central Ukrainian city of Dnipropetrovsk.
‘Professional volunteers’ are making an overhaul of military hardware on their own initiative. “We have found free premises and specialists at the plant who were ready to repair armored vehicles by their own means and thanks to their ties. They are volunteers, but they are professionals,” acting plant’s director Alexander Svergun said.
First armored infantry vehicle BMP-2 overhauled at the plant has already been handed over to Ukrainian armed forces. This armored vehicle is used in hostilities in the 93rd motor rifle brigade, chief of the armored service of Ukrainian southern operational command Colonel Yevgen Sydorenko said. Around 20% of armored vehicles need repair in the brigade, he said.
The military hardware-repairing brigade plans to restore a tank T-64, seven machines of air defense missile gun system Tunguska, several armored infantry vehicles and an assault armored vehicle.
Last week Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said that military enterprises had repaired around 13,000 units of military hardware over the five months of this year.
