The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko during his speech at the Munich Security Conference, Saturday, February 7, demonstrated passports and military IDs of Russian soldiers found in Ukraine, reports Ukrinform.

“How much more evidence do we need to recognize the obvious fact that foreign mercenaries, Russian weapons, tanks, and troops are present on our territory? I brought with me passports and military IDs of Russian soldiers, Russian officers, who arrived (in our country).  This is the best evidence of the aggression and presence of the Russian military. We want to show the whole world the Russian soldiers and officers who, as they claim, got lost many kilometers from the border, with weapons and tanks, who are killing our fellow citizens. And this has been going on for more than 8 months,” Poroshenko said, showing the documents.
