Based on the satellite images, the Ukrainian territory and units have been under attack and shelling by artillery units from the territory of the Russian Federation.

According to the published information, seized weapons caches include Russian-made light and heavy weapons as well as rocket propelled grenades and anti-tank weapons, their technical documentation links them to arms factories in Russia. Armoured personnel carriers and tanks carrying Russian flags also are an indication of Russia's involvement. Documents (passports, insurance certificates, etc.) found at hand on captured pro-Russian fighters or mercenaries prove that at least some of them are Russian nationals.
