The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) has registered another fact of Russia's military presence in the territory of Ukraine.

"On the combat positions of Ukrainian troops outside Zaitseve village in the Donetsk region, SBU operatives seized a man-portable flamethrower "Shmel" that had been abandoned by "DPR" militants retreating after a clash with anti-terrorist operation forces. The flamethrower is not in service with the Ukrainian military and, according to experts, belongs to the armed forces of the Russian Federation," the SBU says.
