14 killed in helicopter shot down by separatists in Ukraine


14 soldiers including a general were killed.
Previously, in a fierce assault by government forces early this week, at least 50  rebels were killed. On Monday was the first time Kiev has unleashed its full military force. It was the time to officially reveal that some of the „separatists“ were “volunteers” from Russia. The leader of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, Denis Pushilin, said: “Those who are volunteers from Russia will be taken to Russia today,” referring to some killed Pro-Russian combatants. Supposed Russian weapons were also found. “These are not our weapons – they were brought from Russia. Serial numbers, year of production, specific models … I am publishing this photograph as proof of the aggression of the Putin regime,” wrote the Ukrainian Interior minister Arsen Avakov on his Facebook page. Information provided from unverified sources revealed that the separatists included fighters from Chechnya, Moscow and the southern Russian city of Rostov.
