On Tuesday, CNN, citing sources in the intelligence of the United States informed that the Ukrainian militaries began using short-range ballistic missiles in the fighting in the east. This is the most devastating weapon, which has hitherto been used in the conflict, says CNN. In turn, the speaker of the information center of the National Security and Defense Council (RNBO) of Ukraine Andrey Lysenko said that they do not use ballistic missiles, "because those are very powerful"


Earlier, the RNBO speaker Andrey Lysenko said that the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko is preparing a new plan of attack on the militia, which should become "an unpleasant surprise" for them. Media earlier reported that as a result of artillery shelling by the security forces in one of the centers of confrontation in Ukraine, in Slavyansk half of the buildings had been destroyed.
