More Russian forces entered Southeastern parts, claims Ukraine army.
Monitoring Desk–Kiev, Ukraine: Ukraine has claimed that Russia is opening a new front before Tuesday’s talks between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukranian President Poroshenko.
The Ukrainian military spokesman Andriy Lysenko told journalists on Monday that Russian forces, in the guise of separatist rebels, crossed into southeast Ukraine with 10 tanks and two armored infantry vehicles.
“This morning there was an attempt by the Russian military in the guise of Donbass fighters to open a new area of military confrontation in the southern Donetsk region”, he added.
Lysenko later added that two tanks in the column had been destroyed and several members of an “intelligence-sabotage group” had been seized. “The area is now blocked by Ukrainian troops,” he said.
