"Happy New Year, Dear Army! Three weeks ago we congratulated the Armed Forces with their birthday and they welcomed the unprecedented gifts. Now we have the New Year. And again, a whole bunch of presents. A battalion of the 95th brigade is riding on Spartans (armored cars). A battalion of the 14th Brigade is on T-64BV tanks. A bunch of ... umm ... Pions ('peonies,' 2S7 self-propelled gun - ed.) for those who deserve them. A huge number of KrAZ trucks, such as the army has not received in ALL the years of independence. And a cherry on top - American systems of locating mortar crews. And many, many, many other things. At such pace, another half a year and we'll be carrying the volunteer humanitarian aid to Ryazan (Russia -ed.)," Biriukov wrote.
