According to Grymchak, in recent years, the Ukrainian leadership has made significant changes to army equipment and weapons. “The situation is not comparable with 2014-th. Then they had a chance to more or less winning voynushku but stopped because the army ran away, and started to Balk and fight back. For them it was a surprise, and they did not dare to go further. Now if there is some kind of war, I have the impression that not us,” — said Grymchak.
