According to him, none of the arrived weapons was damaged. And all the propaganda statements of the Russian authorities about how they “skillfully” destroy Western supplies – are not true.
“Russians tell many tales that they allegedly destroyed weapons during transportation. But this is a complete lie. There were several “parishes” at the warehouses where these weapons were stored. But during transportation – no. There is a fairly perfect system. Despite the fact that the Russians are hunting for these weapons “– he said.
Arestovich also said that if it is not necessary to teach our military to use one or another weapon, it immediately goes to specific units. Otherwise – first to the landfill.
