The Ukrainians do not response not to give Russia the grounds to start a full-fledged war. More and more facts that prove participation of the Russian troops in the military actions in Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine are recorded.
Ukraine's Interior Ministry published tapped telephone conversations of the so-called "Donetsk People's Republic Defence Minister" Igor Girkin (Strelkov, aka "The Shooter") with one of the terrorists. These records confirm cooperation between the illegal armed groups and the Russian army, dislocated near the Ukrainian border.
This is what Girkin said to his subordinate:
"Do it, act. The Russian artillery is backing you from the south. You have a night, you must mop everything up there until the reserves come."
Ukraine's Interior Ministry underlines that these and other materials "show direct participation of the regular military units of Russia's Ministry of Defence in the military actions on the terrorists' side against the Ukrainian army," informs UNIAN.
The Ukrainian army managed to "tear" the territory controlled by the terrorists into two parts. The latter are doing their best to get back the lost positions.
