The United States has evidence that Russian troops are firing artillery from inside Russia on Ukrainian military positions, a US official alleged Thursday.
Moscow is also planning to “deliver heavier and more powerful multiple rocket launchers” to the pro-Russian separatist forces in Ukraine, US deputy State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said.
The evidence was based on “intelligence information” that since the shooting down of a Malaysian airliner with the loss of 298 lives arms were “continuing to flow across the border” into Ukraine, Harf said, but she refused to reveal US sources or give further information.
“They’re firing artillery from within Russia to attack Ukranian military,” Harf told reporters.
