The Alliance calls on Russia to stop the flow of money, fighters and weapons into the territory of our country
NATO once again calls on Russia to withdraw troops from the border with Ukraine, stop supporting armed separatists and pro-stem the flow of money, fighters and weapons.
This was announced on Monday the NATO, commenting on the latest developments in eastern Ukraine.
"From the middle of June, we have seen evidence of progressive increasing number of thousands of Russian troops located near the border with Ukraine. It was a step in the wrong direction. This is a step in the direction opposite to the de-escalation of the situation. Again we call on Russia to withdraw its troops from the border of Ukraine, stop supporting armed pro-Russian separatists and stop the flow of fighters, money and weapons in Ukraine. Doing so is very destabilizing and must be stopped, "- said the representative of NATO.
He said that as of today the number of Russian soldiers who are in the area, ranging from 10 to 12 thousand.
"In mid-June the number was lower than 1000, but since then the Russians again increasing military power on the border," - said the representative of NATO.
Commenting on the activities within Ukraine Russian special or irregular forces, he referred to the recent statements of the Supreme Allied Commander Europe, General Bridlava.
"Russian regular forces are very active along the border of Ukraine, simplify the flow of forces, equipment and finance across borders. Supported Russian forces active in Eastern Ukraine. Funding and Russian are very active in the east of Ukraine," - quoted the general representative of the alliance.
Obviously Ukraine demanding Russia seal their border was obviously just more propaganda BS.
Were that not the case Russia doing exactly what Ukraine demanded they do wouldn't be trumpeted as a horrible threat.
YES, it is a ‘horrible threat’ as Russia shot down Ukrainian plabe flying altitude of 6500 meters.
“15 minutes ago Dmitry Tymchuk
Regarding the “Russian invasion of 15 July” Given headers, which massively equipped with a MEDIA briefing today on my statement, I wish to reiterate that statement, so to speak, in writing.
On the border between Russia and Ukraine in the Rostov region, we commit sabotage and reconnaissance groups of the Russian special forces. According to our data, the commanders focus on readiness for infiltration (infiltration) in Ukraine on July 15.
I stressed that such SWAT teams “worked” in the Donbass region during April of this year. The format is exactly the same. Then, following the infiltration of these groups we got Slavyansk, etc. “the Citadel of terrorism”. Now Russia, disillusioned with his mercenaries trying to crank out the same focus.
Any large-scale invasion of Russia to Ukraine and the beginning of “full-fledged war between the two States no one said. Is the secret (at least not yet) the war between Russia and Ukraine. Is it March 2014 years. Who has not yet realized-I’m sorry.
Very much I ask journalists to listen carefully before you write. I understand the desire to resonant MEDIA messages, but do not have to panic. We must confront the enemy with a cool mind.” (Translated by Bing)
Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk has called on Russia to control its border to stop terrorists from crossing into his territory, BBC reports.
Ukraine has demanded that independent monitoring be established to ensure Russia is controlling its border. Kiev says Moscow is fanning violence in eastern Ukraine by allowing fighters and weaponry to cross into its territory.
(Reuters) The Russian statement said Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov had sent a letter to Didier Burkhalter, the acting head of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), inviting observers to the border points at Donetsk, which has the same name as the Ukrainian city seized by pro-Russian separatists, and Gukovo."
Try and keep up with the talking points instead of reahshing old propaganda.
I will not play tit for tat with you. But, I will say that request made by Yatsenyuk has called on Russia to control its border and reported on BBC was dated May 28, 2014..
...so I guess you fell a little behind but granted it is hard to keep current. However the plane Russia shot down was this morning 7/24/2014!
Talk about provocation!
Addendum: There are claims that U.S. intelligence shows U.S. military satellite moment of missile fired and hit BUK the AN-26 plane
PS- I have been talking about these BUK’s for almost two weeks.
Also, it couldn’t have been above 6000 meters if it was dropping supplies, and had depressurized.
VIDEO of the AN 26 shootdown.
The missile tracks and then turns in to hit the aircraft from ABOVE. I’d guess the plane was at 4-6,000 FEET, not meters.
Meanwhile, Kiev is heavily and indiscriminately shelling Lugansk today with several grad volleys, and heavy Arty. Many civilians are reported dead.
MANY pics and vids of this are now up on Youtube.
VIDEO, MLRS barrage on Lugansk:
Shelling Results: (warning GRAPHIC)
Lots of that going on in Ukraine right now, like the mutilated body of the Right Sector kidnapped pro-Russian journalist from Mauriopal, that was found a couple of days ago.
Unfortunately, it is a civil war, and that happens.
NOT a civil war. Russia has invaded Ukraine.
Somebody is sounding scared of the boogie man.

Videos of dead might be accurate. But according to the real-time reports I rec’d the destruction was NOT caused by the ATU [Ukraine army. ]
“according to the real-time reports I recd the destruction was NOT caused by the ATU [Ukraine army. ]”
Another act of war by Russia shooting down the Ukrainian plane.
I do think it's rather unlikely that the Ukrainians shot it down, especially since the rebels don't even have any planes for them to shoot down, and with the rebels already having a track record of shooting down planes over there.
