MOSCOW, June 29. /TASS/. Kiev has a grouping of 75,000 servicemen in the conflict zone in Donbas, head of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR) Igor Plotnitsky told a briefing at LuhanskInformCenter on Monday.
"Judging by what [Ukrainian President] Petro Alexeyevich [Poroshenko] was proudly saying not long ago, the grouping now has more than 60,000 servicemen. However he shyly withheld information about those ‘private battalions’ that are deployed here," he said. "So, the Ukrainian grouping here is likely to exceed 75,000."
On Friday, June 26, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said Kiev troops in Donbas amounted to 60,000.
