U.S. Releases Images Showing Russian Military Firing into Ukraine

Monday, July 28, 2014 | Worthy News / World News


KIEV (Worthy News)-- The United States released a series of satellite images Sunday that appear to support its claims that Russian forces have fired across the border into Ukraine to support rebels there, suggesting a new level of direct Russian involvement in the conflict, USA Today reported.

The U.S. said Russia has been bolstering support to separatists in eastern Ukraine to counter progress that Ukraine's armed forces have made against the rebels.

Analysts say the firepower and anti-aircraft weapons from Russia provide the rebels with a critical edge in their battle against Ukraine's government forces.

The rockets can be fired at troop formations, air fields, staging areas, artillery positions and other "area targets," said Jim Howcroft, a retired Marine intelligence officer with extensive experience in the region. He said that capability would allow rebels to break up offensives launched by Ukrainian forces. -- Source
