Ukraine hits Russia armoured column
Posted on Aug 16 2014 | IANS
Kiev, Aug 15 : Ukraine said Friday that it has partially destroyed an armoured column crossing from Russia, as a controversial Russian aid convoy still waits at the border.
According to NATO, the column was a Russian military "incursion", prompting Britain to summon Russia's envoy to explain, BBC reported.
Meanwhile, Ukrainian border guards have arrived to inspect the aid convoy aimed at helping eastern Ukraine cities now held by pro-Russian rebels.
Russia says Ukraine has increased its military actions to hamper the convoy. The incursion by Russian military vehicles into Ukraine was witnessed Thursday by two British reporters. According to a BBC reporter, the crossing was a reminder of the extent to which the Kremlin has been backing the rebellion in eastern Ukraine.
