Moscow strongly condemns Kiev forces shooting at Russian border guards and demands that such actions cease. Otherwise, Russia reserves the right to protect its territory and citizens, the Foreign Ministry has said.
At around 3 am on Saturday, a vehicle with a squad of Russian border guards, on duty at the frontier between Russia and Ukraine, came under fire from the Ukrainian side, the Russian Ministry said in a statement.
As a result of the incident in the Kuibyshev district of the Rostov region, the vehicle sustained damage: eight bullet holes were found in the vehicles chassis.
Only by good fortune were none of the Russian border-guards injured, the Foreign Ministry statement reads.
Moscow says it has evidence that the shooting came from Ukrainian territory and a position on Russian soil, which was prepared in advance after attackers from Ukraine penetrated the country.
Russia is demanding that Ukraine stops shooting at its territory and committing violations of its border, according to the statement released on Saturday.
In case of future provocations, the ministry said, Russia reserves the right to take all measures provided by the Russian Federations law to protect its territory and provide for the safety of its citizens.
Three Russian frontier guards came under fire during the incident on Saturday, Vasiliy Malayev, a spokesperson for Rostov regions Federal Security Services told Itar-Tass earlier. He said the Russian soldiers fired back, following which the shooting ended.

There have been several incidents on the border in the last week.
Sounds like the Russians are looking for their Sudetenland moment...
Several tweets now that Russian Forces have officially entered East Ukraine. Looking for confirmation.
I’ve been seeing those Russians are here stories also but no confirmation.
UK Air Force on Full Alert, Russians advanced three K in to Ukraine, ETC...
Latest is this:
“19:00 Russia army opened fire on Ukraine unit in Hremyach village, They targeted the bridge over Sudost river”
I can’t find anything on Google earth that matches that name.
So far, the only ones saying this are Ukrainian Troll twitter accounts. It seems to have started with a known Right-Sector account.
-During the day Aviation forces ATU has 7 air strikes on positions and convoys of fighters. Destroyed about 15 pieces of military equipment to terrorists.
Terrorists twice fired at the checkpoint near the village of Marinovka ATU force. When hit mines in SAU 2s3 akatsiya ammunition they eventually did. Two soldiers were killed.

Ukraine Pravda article:
Russian troops plunged into the territory of Ukraine, ambushed - NSDC
“Russian troops plunged three kilometers into the territory of Ukraine in Luhansk and built there an ambush.
Said a spokesman for the National Security Council Andrei Lysenko, tells Channel 5.
In NSDC suspect that aggressors thus tried to create a corridor to hold equipment and mercenaries into the territory of Ukraine.”
That is all the article says about it, then goes on to quote Lysenko about a fight in Marinka.
Thanks for the contribution.
Ukrainians are going to keep killing Russkies and they are not going to stop. This war will come to Russia soon, and Putin will have to flee the angry mobs just like his comrade Yanukovich.
Facts from Dmitry Tymchuk you may follow him on facebook with 173,668 other people. He frequestly is consulted for televised and print media... tells it like it is!
The Ukraine Army took losses to a rocket attack, of course there’s another Russian invasion scare.
BREAKING-NAF shot down another helicopter Mi 24 near Snezhnoe
QUOTE OF THE DAY:
Kolomoisky: “When Yanukovich fled, oligarchy died in Ukraine”
". . . Ukraine's National Guard, Major General Serhiy Kulchytskiy, was among the fatalities"
A General was on one of the other helicopters shot down as well which means either the only people riding in helicopters are sure to be high ranking officers or the seperatists have some very, very, good intelligence sources within the ranks of the UNG.
“or the seperatists have some very, very, good intelligence sources within the ranks of the UNG.”
All of the sackings of High-ranking Officers by Kiev in the last ten days is a pretty good indication of that.
And, Kiev has consistently underestimated, and talked down the strength of the rebellion, all along.

With indiscriminate shelling of population areas including large cities by the government forces the so-called RT propaganda on fascist junta entrenched in Kiev is so real to the locals so insurgency would only grow.
