KIEV, June 11. /TASS/. Ukraine’s State Border Service has confirmed on Thursday that foreign military equipment really entered Ukrainian territory.

"As you know, joint Ukrainian-American exercises are currently being conducted at the Yavorivsky range (Lviv region) and the equipment of the units involved in the maneuvers has entered Ukraine," State Border Service spokesman Oleg Slobodyan told TASS, answering a request to confirm or deny this information.

According to him, about 10 pieces of equipment have crossed the border with Hungary. Slobodyan also said that "after the exercise is over, it [the equipment] must leave the territory of Ukraine."

On Wednesday, June 10, the Hungarian Internet edition Karpathir published photos of a column of vehicles for transportation of volley fire systems at the Zakhon checkpoint in the Carpathians.
