Ukraine has to use each day of the cease-fire for rotating troops in Donbas with new armor and well-trained servicemen, something which is being done now, president’s adviser Yury Lutsenko said, speaking to Dzerkalo Tyzhnia Oct. 7.

The cease-fire, no matter how flimsy it is, must be used to attain two goals: modernization of the army and economic reforms, Lutsenko said.

 “For considerations of secrecy, I cannot give you the exact figures, but I can assure you that hundreds of armor have been deployed to Donbas. Thousands of troops which are better trained than those at the start of the war are replacing those involved in the battle,” Lutsenko said.
