Gunmen dressed in Ukrainian Armed Forces uniforms have appeared in Chervonopartyzansk, Luhansk Oblast. They appear to be posing as National Guard members who have defected to the Russian side, as reported by Volodymyr Chepoviy, spokesman for the Information Center of the National Security Council of Ukraine (NSC). “We wish to officially state that no units of Ukraine’s National Guard are stationed in or near Chervonopartyzansk,” he said. Chepoviy called on local residents to remain alert to possible provocations by terrorists in the region.

As Ukrinform reported, citing InfoResist’s Dmytro Tymchuk, Russian militants Ukrainian uniforms keep moving in on Ukraine’s eastern borders and are prepared for provocations.
