National Security Council: Terrorists have mined ways to the Boeing 777 crash site
Terrorists took up positions at the site of the Malaysian airlines Boeing 777 crash near the city of Torez, Spokesman for Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council information center (NSDC) Andriy Lysenko reported at a briefing.
"They have drawn up a large number of heavy artillery and mined all approaches to this area, which makes it difficult for international experts, who are to start their job and determine the cause of the accident with the downed Boeing 777 to work there, he said.
He also mentioned that terrorists are encircled, and thus will soon be forced to leave weapons and retreat. "But we'll still have a dangerous situation with mines, which will obviously delay our chance to enter into the territory of the crash. But we can handle it,” he said.
As you know, an international mission managed by the Netherlands is due to arrive at the Boeing 777 crash scene.
The mission will consist of military and non-military personnel from the Netherlands and Australia.
Terrorists have managed to bring seven tanks from the Russian Federation to Ukraine
Donbas terrorist factions succeeded in bringing over seven tanks from Russia on the night of 30 July, Spokesman for Ukrainian National Security and Defence Council Andriy Lysenko reported at a briefing.
A border patrol of the Uspenka checkpoint spotted a group of armed terrorists who were trying to break through to Russia in the direction of the village of Avilo-Fedorivka, Lysenko said.
"Border guards went into action and prevented the cross-border incursion. The remnants of insurgents were forced to move away from the border," he added.
However, the spokesman for the National Security Council also announced that a column of seven tanks had managed to break through, heading from Nova Nadezhda (Russia) towards Dibrovka (Ukraine).
Lysenko also said that Russia continues to build up its military presence in close proximity to the border with Ukraine.
