Over the past few months, Russia has supplied the separatists terrorizing eastern Ukraine with over a thousand units of heavy weapons. It was stated by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg in Brussels, Joinfo.ua informs.
“The intelligence services of many NATO member countries, as well as open sources – the media, messages from families of Russian soldiers – all confirm the same situation: Russia provides the separatists with substantial support, supplies heavy and modern military equipment, such as air defense systems, artillery, tanks, as well as conducts their training. There are also Russian forces present on the territory of eastern Ukraine and along the Ukrainian-Russian border,” Stoltenberg said.
At the same time, NATO Secretary General could not give the exact number of the Russian soldiers in the east of Ukraine, since, according to his information, these data differ.
“What we have seen is that over the past few months Russia has supplied more than a thousand pieces of heavy weapons to the separatists,” NATO Secretary General stated.
