Ukrainian media have recently reported that Donbas terrorists are using portable air defense systems Igla (Needle) which belong to Russian military bases. On June 6, after terrorists’ attack on checkpoint Marinivka (Donetsk region), Ukrainian soldiers found packing cases and packing lists proving that these defense systems had been kept in Military Unit No 3359 (the city of Yeysk, Krasnodar territory) since 2001. On April 12, 2014 the weapons were still in the unit’s stock: the list bears a mark of their latest check. The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry demanded explanations, but the Russian Federation keeps silence.
