 Russian Aircrafts Violated Ukrainian Airspace and Reached Luhansk - Selezniov

Violations of the state border of Ukraine by Russian aviation continue.

ATO press secretary Vladyslav Selezniov reports this, Censor.NET informs

ATO forces registered violation of the state border of Ukraine by Russian aircrafts today (07/29/14) between 08.33 and 08.38 am. This is not the first case of this kind. There were several more cases of illegal Ukrainian border trespassing by aircrafts from the Russian Federation before. Sometimes these aircrafts deepened into the territory of Ukraine up to 50 kilometers moving over the city of Luhansk. Perhaps the Russian aviation has provocations in the format of those that occurred in Snizhne (the shelling of residential neighborhood presumably by Russian aviation - Ed.) among the tasks," Selezniov said.
