As you know, after the illegal annexation of Crimea in March 2014, Russia began to actively support the militants in the Donbas. The Ukrainian side has repeatedly said that the Donbass is military equipment from the Russian Federation and the Russian military. All these accusations the Kremlin denies, however, refused to grant international observers access beyond the control of the Kiev area of the Ukrainian-Russian border. At the same time, Pro-Russian militants in violation of all agreements, carry out attacks of positions of VSU.
The Ukrainian military have repeatedly cited evidence that Pro-Russian militants used weapons that only the Russian army.
