Kiev: 'Absolute Proof' Russia Was Involved In Shooting Down of Aircraft

Rumors That More Separatist Artillery Is Headed Toward Donetsk

The head of Ukraine's security services (SBU) says that there is "absolute proof" that Russia was directly involved in the shooting down of a military transport plane yesterday. VOA reports:

Valentyn Nalyvaichenko said Tuesday that the evidence Russia was involved in shooting down the AN-26 transport plane over the Luhansk region would be presented to President Petro Poroshenko and made public.

On Monday, pro-Russian separatists claimed responsibility for shooting down the plane and said four crew members had been taken prisoner.

However, the Defense Ministry said Monday the plane was flying too high to have been hit by conventional surface-to-air missiles.

As a direct result of that incident Ukraine says it has grounded its aircraft in eastern Ukraine. Because of this, Ukraine claims a Russian aircraft was able to conduct an airstrike, and we have been tracking a convoy (or convoys) of military vehicles that have moved from the direct vicinity of the Russian border all the way to Donetsk without coming under attack by Ukrainian aircraft.
