MOSCOW, July 18. /ITAR-TASS/. A spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry said that neither the Buk (Beech) anti-aircraft missile systems nor other weaponry in service with the Russian Armed Forces had crossed the border into Ukraine.

“It cannot be done secretly,” he said.

“Speaking about another allegation by official Kiev about detention of two Buk ‘fire controllers’ who are allegedly citizens of the Russian Federation, we would like to explain that fire controllers are needed only for those weapons whose targets are located on the ground.”
