Ukrainian tanks are fueled at the expense of an oligarch
Military machinery of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine standing without fuel had to be fueled at the expense of the local oligarch. When it was ordered to proceed to manoeuvres it appeared that tanks were out of gas.
The head of the Crimean media center of the Ministry of Defense Vladislav Seleznev wrote about the situation with fuel in the army.
"Heads of operations command South that manage military units in 11 regions in the east and south of Ukraine addressed the governor of Dnepropetrovsk region. Military units received the order to follow to manoeuvres, but a number of units had no fuel to fulfill the order," Seleznev wrote.
Seleznev added that as a result the governor Igor Kolomoyskiy fueled machinery at his own expense.
Igor Kolomoyskiy is a member of supervisory councils of Privatbank, of the oil-refining plant Neftekhimik Prikarpatia, as well as of oil-production enterprise Ukrnafta. Since March 2, 2014 he is the head of the Dnepropetrovsk Regional State Administration.
Earlier the acting Minister of Defense Igor Tenykh basing on results of the recent military exercises reported that actually only 6,000 out of 41,000 soldiers were in combat readiness.
