«Vehicles on the front line perform many functions: delivery of personnel, ammunition, products, evacuation of the wounded, transportation of doctors. We try to keep the car as long as possible, but there are often cases when it can work for a day, two, a week – and it’s gone,» says colonel, deputy commander of the combined assault brigade “Lyut” Roman Polishchuk.
