On the front of the special operation, the Armed Forces of Ukraine are showing the ingenuity that we saw in Syria. Experiencing a shortage of weapons, the military made it from everything that was. Told about it editor of the magazine “Arsenal of the Fatherland” Alexey Leonkov in an interview with Ukraina.ru.

A video has appeared on the Web in which APU fighters installed two UB-32 57-mm rocket launchers from a helicopter on the BMP-1 chassis. These cluster guides are loaded with S-5 or S-8 unguided rockets. In Syria, they also created mortars that fire gas cylinders, inside of which there was an explosive. However, the accuracy of such guns was zero.

On the territory of Syria, carts used by ISIS* militants were seen. This is not surprising, since Arabic-speaking fighters take part in the troops of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

“Yes, this is too general a statement, because the language of the ISIS and the Afghan special forces is different. They are also present there. These are the same special forces that the Americans saved after they left Afghanistan. They were hated by the entire Afghan people, because they were death squads” Leonov said.

* – recognized by the decision of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation of December 29, 2014 as a terrorist organization, its activities are prohibited on the territory of the Russian Federation.
