KIEV, August 23. /TASS/. Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko has transferred 141 pieces of domestically-produced combat hardware to the country’s armed forces to strengthen their grouping in the area of Kiev’s military operation in Donbass.
"Today we’re transferring 141 pieces of military hardware produced and modernized at Ukrainian defense enterprises," Poroshenko said at the handover ceremony in the town of Chuguyev in the north-eastern Kharkov region.
As Poroshenko said, this combat hardware will help the Ukrainian army to defend the country more effectively and finally achieve peace in the Donbass region.
In 2016 alone, the Ukrainian armed forces have received over a thousand units of combat hardware, Poroshenko said. The Ukrainian leader also said that deliveries from foreign partners had been organized as well.
"Our partners have already delivered over 700 pieces of military and special hardware: radar stations, counter-battery radars and we’re already receiving remotely piloted stations, thermal imaging devices and reliable communications means," Poroshenko said.
