 Number of tanks, artillery systems, MLRSes in occupied Donbas exceeds that of Bundeswehr, - Poroshenko

Russia has deployed in the occupied Donbas more tanks and artillery systems than the Federal Republic of Germany has in service.

As reported by Censor.NET citing 112 Ukraine, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said at a briefing.

"Today, I would argue that the number of tanks, artillery systems, multiple launch rocket systems in the occupied territory in the east of our country alone exceeds that in service of the German Bundeswehr. With such an aggressive behavior of Russia, Europe can not feel safe," Poroshenko said.
