“Speaking about safety issues, there are no signs of improvement there. Russia deployed 34,000-strong military contingent in Donbas”, the Ukrainian diplomat said during Thursday session of the UN Security Council.
According to him, the Russian troops are well armed and equipped. “On that day (Thursday -112 International), we counted 470 tanks, 970 APCs, 450 cannons and 190 Grad multiple missile launchers… all of that was allegedly bought in the gun stores. We would be grateful if Russia took action and told the separatists in Donbas to give up all these deadly toys and send them back to Russia”, Prystaiko said.
