Ukraine's military accused Russia of sending more tanks into the east of the country yesterday to support Russian separatists, the Euro News website reports today (November 7, 2014).
NATO says it has seen an increase in Russian troops and equipment along the border between the two countries during the past few days, and is looking into reports that tanks crossed into Ukraine.
The Ukrainian authorities also claim government forces killed some 200 rebels at Donetsk airport yesterday.
"The convoy headed towards the town of Krasny in the Luhansk region. The movement of military equipment was reported, consisting of 32 tanks, 16 howitzer artillery systems, and 30 trucks carrying ammunition and fighters," Andriy Lysenko, spokesman for the Ukrainian Defense and Security Council, told a news briefing.
