During combat clashes on June 13, four Ukrainian special forces servicemen were killed in action  and 31 wounded. No data is available on the terrorist’s casualties

There were a number of combat clashes between terrorists and ATO forces in the area of ​​anti-terrorism operation (ATO) last night, Dmitry Tymchuk, the head of the Center for Military-Political Studies, stated on his Facebook page. He states that Ukrainian special forces destroyed two battle tanks which arrived earlier at the disposal of pro-Russian terrorists. ATO forces have also destroyed three armored personnel carriers, two trucks transporting terrorists and weapon, two vehicles mounted with heavy machine guns Degtyariov-Shpagin (DSHK).

“Three convoys invaded from Russia were blocked and seized by ATO forces captured in the areas bordering on Russia. Seized vehicles were carrying ammunition and weapons for terrorists,” – noted Dmitry Tymchuk.

Tymchuk reported that during the combat clashes four Ukrainian special forces servicemen were killed in action  and 31wounded. No available data on terrorists casualties at the moment.

Earlier, on June 12, Arsen Avakov, the Minister of Interior said that convoys of military vehicles entered eastern Ukraine through checkpoints seized by terrorists on the Eastern border of Ukraine. He confirmed information that three tanks passed through the border of Ukraine. According to preliminary data, these are T-72 tanks, which are in service in the Russian army. The Ukrainian army does not have this model of tanks. As was commented earlier by EuromaidanPR, due to numerous modifications of the T-72 and T-64 and inter-connections between defense industries of Ukraine and Russia it is hard to determine tank model only from a video.

In the evening of June 12, 2014, a convoy of three Russian main battle tanks and two KAMAZ trucks with terrorists entered Donetsk from Makiyivka. Later in the evening, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko called this situation “unacceptable” in a telephone conversation with Vladimir Putin, President of the Russian Federation.

  1. Poroshenko to say the least the Russian tanks and mercenaries are “unacceptable” on Ukrainian soil. Putin’s Regime in addition to killing people of Ukraine with military weapons they have also unleashed the most virulent lying propaganda against Ukraine to turn the world against them. Calling them fascists, neo-nazi’s, anti-semitics, Ultra Nationalists and by inference suggesting they were enthusiastic participants of the Jewish Holocaust in WW2. This is worse than murdering Ukrainians in cold blood. This is taken from both the communists book of propaganda of Russia and the fascists of Germany who needed to wash their hands of the blood of victims of WW2. They were able to pin it on a weak nation that had been trying to get independence from Russia for centuries. Even people living in Ukraine today who were raised on Soviet propaganda believe it. That brain washing has been going on for centuries by Russia and they’ve been able to get away with it. Since they killed so many in Ukraine and the rest that escaped never had the money or the power to fight these lies. But, they did tell their children about the lies and we are here to clear their memory. We have the will and we will find the power. Putin and your regime will not last no matter how you have tried to control your people. In the end, evil will not win. I have never been a vengeful person but after what Putin has done once again the helpless nation of Ukraine, it’s time for Ukraine and those who imigrated to get together and fight this serpent with everything in our power. All people of Ukraine, contact me and we shall start a powerful anti-propaganda compaign. What ever your ethnic heritage I hope you believe in fairness and justice…help Ukraine, fight Russia.
