Russian supplies to echelons with ammunition and military equipment to militants. This was reported by a representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate of Ministry of Defense of Ukraine Vadim Skibitskiy today at the press conference in Kiev, - reports the correspondent of OstroV.

"Taking advantage of the fact that the state border is not under the control of Ukraine, Russia supplies arms, ammunition and other materials. In particular, about 30 trucks with ammunition and military equipment came through the Dolzhansky checkpoint during the whole week and arrived at the military stores of the 2nd Army Corps in Luhansk, Krasny Luch, Alchevsk and Stakhanov, that occurred on February 6th,"- he added .
According to him, convoy of military equipment and personnel entered the territory of Ukraine near Krasny Oktyabr village on February 8th.
"3 military echelons came to the territory of Ukraine by rail during the week on the route Rostov-on-Don – Ilovaysk, they brought tanks, infantry combat vehicles, howitzers, self-propelled artillery, military vehicles, about 300 tons of ammunition and about 300 tons of fuel and lubricants", - said Vadim Skibitskiy.
In addition, as the speaker of the MID informed, the military echelon was found on the route Rostov-on-Don - Khartsyzsk, which delivered ammunition and antitank weapons.
"The military echelons often go on the route Kamensk-Shakhtinsky - Luhansk, delivering ammunition, fuel and lubricants", - he said.
"Thus, the Russian Federation is now taking measures to build stockpiles of ammunition, fuel and lubricants on the territory of Ukraine. It is possible that there is an active preparation for the resumption of active offensive operations," - said Vadim Skibitskiy.
