The State Border Service of Ukraine claimed that they have detained a KAMAZ truck with a Russian serviceman and ammunition at a checkpoint in the Donetsk region
Ukrainian border guards have detained a KAMAZ vehicle with an alleged Russian officer and ammunition at the Berezovoye checkpoint in eastern Ukraine's Donetsk Region, according to the country's State Border Service, cited by media reports.


"About 10 p.m. on July 25, State Border Service officers at the Berezovoye checkpoint detained a KAMAZ vehicle fully packed with ammunition. The vehicle was accompanied by two persons in uniform," the service said.

It added that the border guards "found that one of the men was a professional soldier of the Russian Armed Forces with the rank of Major," while the other was allegedly a man fighting for the Donetsk Region's independence.

"The law enforcement officers discovered a large number of boxes of ammunition of various calibers in the KAMAZ," the State Border Service said.

According to the border guards, the truck was on its way to the Russian-Ukrainian border when it was detained; the vehicle reportedly came from the territory currently controlled by Donetsk Region independence supporters.


Officers from Ukraine's Security Service and Interior Ministry, as well as other government agencies, arrived on the scene to clarify all the circumstances.

The Ukrainian authorities, the United States and the European Union have repeatedly accused Moscow of interfering in Ukraine's domestic affairs.


Moscow denies the accusations, saying that it is not a party to Ukraine's internal conflict. Russia also says that it is not involved in the events in Ukraine's southeast and that it is interested in Kiev finally breaking the political and economic gridlock.


For his part, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that allegations regarding the presence of Russian servicemen in the Donbass Region in eastern Ukraine have never been confirmed with concrete facts.
