T inhabited localities and positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the border regions with Russia are being shelled from the territory of Russia, the Ukraines airspace is being violated by the Russian military aviation and drones, there is being held continuous accumulation of subdivisions and means of the Russian Armed Forces and deploying gunners locations, and these facts contradict the statements aired by the Russian party. As a result of bombardment there are victims among the civilian population and soldiers, destroyed residential, administrative and commercial buildings.

On August 4, 2014 the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine once again sent a note and expressed categorical protest to the Russian party in connection with permanent attempts to commit acts of aggression against our country, that were committed through 1 3 August of the current year. In particular, the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine near the state border checkpoints Dovzhansky, Dyakove and Chervonopartyzansk, inhabited localities Dyakove and Stanytsya Luhanska in Luhansk region and Amvrosiyivka of Donetsk region were shelled from the territory of Russia.

In the areas of the inhabited localities of Blahovishchenka, Herasymivka, Krasna Talivka, Shyroke and Yuhanivka of Luhansk region were fixed violations of Ukraines airspace from the territory of Russia by eleven helicopters, in particular MI-8, MI-24 and KA-52. Remotely piloted airplanes have violated the airspace of Ukraine from the Russian territory in the area of border checkpoint Dovzhansky, inhabited localities of Herasymivka, Zolotarivka, Blahovishchenka and Yuhanivka of Luhansk region, and also Sedove of Donetsk region.

The Russian special services continue to support terrorist organizations called the Donetsk Peoples Republic and the Luhansk Peoples Republic, as well as to send mercenaries to Ukraine to destabilize the situation. The warfare against Ukraine and its people is being conducted just with Russian weapon and with participation of the Russian citizens.

We categorically demand from the Russian side to immediately put an end to such criminal actions which are directed against independency, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, to withdraw the troops from the border with Ukraine and join the efforts of our country and an international community in order to stabilize the situation in Donetsk and Luhansk region.
