According to the Alliance, the military equipment supplied to the separatists involves battle tanks, including current T-80 and T-90 models, armored vehicles, artillery, and air defense systems. The pro-Russian militants now have more weapons at the disposal than before the signing of the Minsk Agreement, which is a gross violation.
