April 6th 2018: OSCE UAV (drone) spots 2 Russian tanks. Location is in the front line village of Verkhnoshyrokivske. Located in the Donetsk Oblast (province), Russian occupation forces use the village as a check point, for traffic wanting to pass through it and enter Ukrainian territory.
As I’ve said often enough, the Kremlin’s on-going propaganda accuses Ukraine of deliberately shelling civilian areas. Yet, as we can see here, if Russia positions its military vehicles around civilian houses, and goes onto fire from them, this may provoke Ukrainian return fire. Over the last few days, Ukrainian military have reported coming under fire from tanks. The number of vehicles tracks on the image, indicate these houses are regularly used as a military position.
