The notorious leader of Donetsk terrorists Igor Strelkov complained that without interference of Moscow, they will be able to withstand maximum for one month.
He told this in an interview with Russian journalists. As recognized by Strelkov if Russia does not take urgent steps, Ukrainian military will soon succeed to destroy them. Even a few thousand of his henchmen who are now concentrated near the border with tanks and grenade launchers, can not long withstand the Ukrainian aviation and artillery, and would surely be destroyed. Meantime there have been reports that Russia has sent to the Ukrainian border four battalion tactical groups of two landing-assault divisions, allegedly, to secure their borders because of repeated violations of the Ukrainian military. This was reported to the newspaper "Vedomosti" by a source close to the Defense Ministry of the Russian Federation.
