The briefing was held at the headquarters of NATO’s Allied Command in Europe in the Belgian city of Mons.
Gen. Tak claimed that Russia was reinforcing and supplying the “separatist forces” in what he described as an attempt to change momentum of the fighting, as Russia’s presumable goal was to freeze the conflict.
He repeated NATO’s claims that Russian soldiers furnished with sophisticated combat equipment were operating inside the sovereign territory of Ukraine.
In addition, Gen. Tak said that the equipment was used by combat units that were coherent and well-trained.
He ruled out a possibility that the equipment might be operators by the Ukrainian military, who had changed sides in the dragged-out civil conflict.
“The foothold that has been created will be expanded and secured so that the separatists will not suffer a defeat,” Gen. Tak said.
Earlier in the day, NATO Command released a new batch of vague satellite photos with arrows and comments by NATO experts.
