MOSCOW, March 4. /TASS/. US Department of Defense has deployed two radio-electronic intelligence stations in the Kiev-controlled Markovo district of the Lugansk Region, the spokesman for the militia of the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic, Igor Yashchenko, has said.
"According to our intelligence sources, the US Department of Defense representatives have placed two Trailblazer radio-electronic intelligence stations in the village of Kuryachovka, the Markovo district," the LuganskInformCenter news agency quotes him as saying.
Yashchenko believes the Ukrainian government has been using ceasefire for building up the potential of its armed forces, for which it extensively uses assistance from foreign partners.
"Also, US military prepares positions and permanent sites for placing two more medium-range radio relay stations capable of identifying air targets, including supersonic ones," he added.
Earlier, Yashchenko repeatedly said the Ukrainian leadership in Kiev was receiving military equipment from the United States and assistance from the NATO countries in training its military personnel.
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on February 26 signed a law to ratify the agreement between the Ukrainian government and NATO on the status of NATO’s office in Ukraine. The agreement envisages the establishment of a NATO mission in Ukraine consisting of a liaison office and an information and documentation center.
