According to him, it is important for the army to maintain the airports of Donetsk, Luhansk, and Kramatorsk under control. "If we had lost those positions, there would have been planes and landing troops already. Now they are delivering only 5% of the equipment and personnel they planned to deliver across the border," said Heletei.
