"Materials, equipment, weapons, and supplies continue to flow to the east of Ukraine," Breedlove said adding that he is concerned about it. He also urged to "return to the standards, adherence of which we expect from Western civilization: that the nations will respect international borders."

The OSCE monitoring mission stated in its report dated Nov. 8 about the unmarked military equipment, trucks without license plates, and armed men without insignia, which were observed in the Donetsk region. The convoy was accompanied by an APC with its gun being covered. The DPR and LPR terrorists have not officially commented on the movement of military equipment on the territory under their control.
