Cases when Ukrainian troops drop weapons have become regular. Yan Gagin, adviser to the Chairman of the Government of the Donetsk People’s Republic, told RIA Novosti about this.
“The enemy, retreating, leaves a lot of weapons, they just run, in some places they just turn to flight, throwing personal belongings,” the agency interlocutor said.
According to him, among the weapons are anti-tank missiles, small arms, uniforms and equipment elements. The military also leaves weapons, which were supplied by their Western partners.
Earlier, the head of the DPR Denis Pushilin said that the situation on the contact line remains tense, “the armed formation of Ukraine is still fighting with the civilian population.”
Meanwhile, Ukrainian servicemen who defected to the Donetsk People’s Republic confirmed that Kiev was preparing an offensive operation on Donbass. It turned out that the security forces were given the command to prepare for large-scale hostilities.
