Reznikov showed a "military zoo"

"Today I had the honour to test the new replenishment in our armed units together with the commander of the Airborne Forces Maxim ‘Mike’ Myrhorodsky and our paratroopers. Challengers from the UK, Stryker & Cougars from the US and Marders from Germany," Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov wrote on his Facebook page.

Reznikov added that Ukraine has managed to change the world this year, because a year ago "no one would have thought that the support of our partners would be so powerful. That the entire civilized world would reboot and eventually resist the bloody aggressor, the terrorist country of the Russian Federation."
