This was announced by the M sector press officer Yaroslav Chepurnyi on 112 Ukraine TV channel, Censor.NET reports.
Besides, the marines concluded that the militants "openly come to Shyrokyne even at day and dig something, presumably, build fortifications."
Moreover, the ATO forces intelligence spotted six tanks with Ukrainian insignia in Novoazovsk. "The insignia included not only yellow-blue flags, as some agencies wrote, but also special designations understood both by Ukrainian military and their opponents, which distinguish one side from the other," Chepurnyi said.
"In addition to these six tanks, a BTR-82 was seen near Novolaspa. This vehicle is not in the inventory of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. This is direct evidence that the vehicle came from Russia," he added.
