Donetsk, Jan 26 – DAN. Ukrainian units on Donetsk, Gorlovka and Mariupol axes received supplies of additional ammo, the deputy chief-of-staff of the Republican People's Militia Eduard Basurin said.
"Special trains with fuel and lubricants for 25, 56, 54, 53 and 36 Ukrainian brigades arrived at Krasnoarmeisk, Druzhkovka, Zachatovka railway stations," he said.
The supplies are to be delivered to units during nightime via country roads to conceal the fact from locals and the OSCE SMM.
Ukrainian leadership is also in contact with Western countries to procure more ammo and equipment in short supply.
In particular, Kiev is negotiating supplies of Soviet-times artillery rounds from NATO countries and 152 mm artillery rounds from the Czech Republic.
The situation in Donbass has deteriorated even further recently, as Ukrainian army is preparing a new offensive against the region, and floods the territories it controls along the line of contact with radicals, MLR sustems, NATO weapons and chemical units. *ot
