The Washington-based Institute for the Study of War cited Russian claims that Ukraine was using T-72 tanks that were abandoned by Russian forces and that Ukraine is now trying to advance towards Luhansk, under Russian control.

Earlier this month, Ukraine launched counterattacks and its troops entered the vicinity of Kharkiv, its second largest city. Videos and photos show Ukrainian soldiers taking possession of tanks, ammunition and other weapons that Russian soldiers had left there during the retreat. Meanwhile, Ukrainian soldiers found graves near the town of Igeum.
