They comply fully with the international agreements and will allow a maneuver in case the opposite side violates the cease-fire regime. Besides, we are considering a complex system of replacing tanks and artillery with ATMs. We are changing the fire sectors and improving the alert system - everything not to drop the firepower," the speaker said.
