Ukrainian military commented on samples of equipment transferred Poroshenko for the needs of "ATO"
The official (published by leading Ukrainian media) interviews with the servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine say that “the fighters are very happy about the present from Kiev, since the old equipment was constantly breaking down”
From an interview with one of the "ATO fighters" on the TV channel TSN:
The soldier of the 27-th separate artillery brigade of the Ukrainian Armed Forces Vladimir Koval:
At the same time, on social networks, servicemen who were not included in the frames of pro-presidential media, publish "evil" remarks. In particular, it is said that this is not the first such pompous transfer of “new” equipment by Petro Poroshenko. And the “novelty” most often consists either in deterioration of the performance characteristics of the Soviet equipment, or in the banal painting with fresh paint, for example, of old tanks that were either already built up in the conflict zone, or were “frozen” in the same Kharkiv region with the replacement of spare parts what is left in stock.
Recall that Poroshenko handed 150 units of equipment to the troops, saying that it would help restore sovereignty over the Donbas. In the same place (in Chuguev), Poroshenko actually acknowledged that he did not intend to implement the Minsk agreements.
