Only Russian volunteers fighting with anti-Kiev forces - Donetsk Republic leader"I have made a decision to cancel my working visit to the Republic of Turkey due to sharp aggravation of the situation in Donetsk region, particularly in Amvrosiivka and Starobeshevo, as Russian troops were brought into Ukraine," Petro Poroshenko said in a statement on his website.
The Russian representative to the OSCE Andrey Kelin, meanwhile, has given a firm response to the allegations, saying that "we have said that no Russian involvement has been spotted, there are no soldiers or equipment present."
"Accusations relating to convoys of armored personnel carriers have been heard during the past week and the week before that," he said. "All of them were proven false back then, and are being proven false again now."
Russian Defense Ministry: Online list of army units 'relocated to Ukraine' is a fake"They [Russian volunteers] are among us, people of Donbass [Region, eastern Ukraine] because we are blood brothers," said the Chairman of the Council of Ministers of the Donetsk People's Republic, Aleksandr Zakharchenko, in an interview to Russian media.
[HR][/HR]"We have studied the contents of this hoax, and are obliged to disappoint its overseas authors and their few sympathizers in Russia, who have joined forces to publish their 'revelations' about the Defense Ministry," spokesman General Igor Konashenkov said in a statement cited by Russian news agencies.
"Their scoop bears no relation to reality," he added.
The list of units – variously referred to by the authors as having been "moved to the conflict area" and "stationed on the southeastern border with Ukraine" – was published Tuesday afternoon by a blog belonging to a low-profile Russian veterans' organization, Forgotten Regiment. The group is headed by human rights activist Elena Vasilieva, who recently claimed that bodies of dead Russian soldiers have been coming back en masse from eastern Ukraine.
Regarding content, unless it is the original content of the poster, the poster must provide a link, or at least name the author, so that the forum does not host content that can be accused of having been plagiarized. In your case, you have mentioned that it was another author, so it is fine. I would request @happy to add source.
