Columns of heavy military equipment that had entered Ukrainian territory were eliminated with the help of military aircraft, said Defense Ministry spokesman Bohdan Senyk on the TV program Podrobnosti, Sunday, July 13.

“The decision was made immediately, and the column was attacked. We can confirm that military aircraft was used on five sites, on the positions of the militants at the Luhansk airport, Senyk said.

According to Senyk, the equipment that broke through to Ukraine is “yet another proof that terrorists are operating with technical support from the Russian Federation.”

Senyk neither confirmed nor denied information on the advance of the Ukrainian army on Luhansk. “I have no such information,” he said. “But everything that is being done is to liberate the city from terrorists and their groups.”

In turn, Serhiy Melnychuk, commander of the Aidar battalion, said he believed the heavy military equipment observed in Luhansk was brought in from Russia by the deposed president Viktor Yanukovych.

“I think this is the money of Yanukovych and his associates that is being used to buy equipment for terrorists,” Melnychuk said.

    Strike, and strike again. Show no mercy. This can only be the way. Slava Ukrayini!

      Well said. It is the only way. And don’t give a damn whose flags they are flying either.

    I agree with Walter, nothing to add

    Is Yanukovich buying these aircrafts from the Russian Federation? Why isn’t Putin putting an end to that?

    Just make sure Putin doesn’t kill orphaned children. I’d rather let Donbass go than allow him todo that. Remember how the Russians blackened Ukraine’s name in the world after WW2. Don’t let them do it again. Let those two corrupt areas go.

      success does not come freely and your freedom has come at countless cost in many past wars. Nations can always make more babies or evacuate but living in a state of perpetual fear and oppression is worse than death itself so people will always fight for their freedom.
