‘We are the largest army in Europe – 261,000, as Ukraine’s legislation assigns’, the minister said.

According to him, the General Staff is trying to rationally allocate funds to the army and upgrade military equipment.

Reznikov stressed that the Ukrainian army currently has sufficient fuel and ammunition reserves, but still is not receiving 100% funding from the budget.
