Ukraine’s tanks are in operational reserve and not used in combat operations

Ukraine’s tanks are in operational reserve and not used in combat operations in the Donbass region, that was reported by Ministry of Defence of Ukraine.

Some online resources spread information that Ukraine is allegedly deploying armoured fighting vehicles along the frontline. The press center of the Anti-Terrorist Operation (ATO) states that this weaponry is in operational reserve of the Ukrainian government army to respond to enemy’s assaulting actions. Armoured fighting vehicles are currently not used in combat operations in the Donbass region.

Media representatives are welcome to receive correct and official information at the ATO press center.


Heavy fighting in Ukraine began over the weekend. Pro-Russian militants have been fighting government troops and volunteer brigades in eastern Ukraine since April 2014 in clashes that have killed more than 9,700 people. The peace deal signed in February 2015 called for a cease-fire, for heavy weapons to be pulled back from the front lines and for a political resolution of the conflict.

What sparked the recent escalation is unclear.
