Ukrainian MP and former Russian prisoner Nadiya Savchenko has stated that Ukrainian soldiers fighting in the Donbas are inadequately equipped, Interfax-Ukraine reported.
According to her, Ukrainian soldiers are given low-quality clothing and shoes, as well as weapons that are technologically obsolete.
“I always ride with the military units on the frontline, and at trainings, and I see the stuff that is provided by our Army. And as a member of the Committee on National Security and Defense, I know what kind of crazy money is allocated for the purchase of this stuff,” Savchenko said at a press conference in Kiev on Tuesday.
Savchenko has also noted in the past that “corruption is rampant” in the Ukrainian Army.
