November 8 , 2014
Kiev has claimed that a Russian military column that includes tanks and artillery systems has entered eastern Ukraine.
Andriy Lysenko, the Ukraine military spokesperson, said the deployment comprised “military equipment and Russian mercenaries".
Nato said if confirmed, the Russian military’s move would constitute further evidence of “Russia’s aggression and direct involvement in destabilizing Ukraine”.
Meanwhile, Ukraine said that five government troops were killed and 16 wounded in the latest clashes with pro-Russia rebels.
