The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine claimed that the information that the state defense order is not being fulfilled was a fake; they reported on the status of supply of new weapons and military equipment to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. This was announced by Deputy Defense Minister Hanna Maliar on her Facebook page.
“The dissemination of unreliable information that the Ministry of Defense allegedly does not fulfill the defense order has become a planned information operation. Unfortunately, this fake information is spread not only by certain bloggers and some media, but also by some MPs. Order-2021 from the Ministry of Defense is on schedule, planned, efficient and without disruption,” Maliar writes.
The deputy minister states that more than 1,100 pieces of firearms and military equipment have already been delivered to the Armed Forces of Ukraine this year. In particular, 43 units of armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles, 5 units of upgraded aircrafts, 4 units of upgraded helicopters, 80 units of mortars, 266 units of sniper rifles, 468 units of jet flamethrowers, 43 units of radar stations and EW stations, 3 units of unmanned aerial vehicles ("Stork"), more than 200 units of special equipment by type of troops.
