In fact, the Soviet-made tents that were previously installed in the camp were recently replaced with those manufactured domestically, with the media reporting that the 'upgrade' the camp was now built "almost up to the NATO standards", as revealed by a servicemen stationed there via his Facebook page.
"It was all good and well until yesterday, when the rain started. You know, And the tents started leaking. All over the training range. They were leaking along the seams and right in the middle. We were having so much fun in the evening and during the night, trying to secure our sleeping bags and clothes from the pouring water," he remarked.
The soldier also said that he dearly wants to get his hands on the management of the Ukrainian company that supplied these tents to the military for about $1,600 apiece, and force them to live in one of their creations which become completely "rotten in two months."
The Yavoriv training range frequently serves as a site of joint US-Ukrainian military exercises.
