Russian President’s Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov said that Moscow was not supplying the Donbas with tanks. Kyiv will allegedly know the origin of these machines. He said this to journalists on Friday, the TASS reports.

"The Donbas region is Ukrainian territory, despite the fact that Kyiv authorities do not control it. Despite the fact that Ukraine diligently rejects these regions. Therefore, we should probably ask Kyiv about sach situation there", he said.

"Of course, the tanks arrived to Donbas not from Russia", he said.

He also said that there are no Russian troops in Donbas. Peskov said the Kremlin is aware that there are Russian citizens, who voluntarily go there "for the protection of people from the aggressive actions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine".
