DONETSK, July 26. /TASS/. Defence Ministry of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) does not have any information Ukrainian border guard stopped a KAMAZ truck loaded with ammunition, the ministry’s representative Eduard Basurin told reporters on Sunday.
"I know nothing about it," he said. "Ukraine keeps making statements of the kind to have reasons to accuse Russia afterwards."
"Ukraine’s Security Service once again is trying to accuse Russia of a military presence in Donbass," the Donetsk News Agency quoted a representative of the DPR’s military authority. "This time they have stopped a KAMAZ with ammunition. As yet, they have not presented proofs of that, apart from the claims and weird pictures of boxes with ammunition. How could they identify the so-called major? Did he have a military ID issued by the DPR? The very presence of a Russian military accompanying a shipment of ammunition by the front line causes irony only."
Earlier on Sunday, Ukraine’s border guard said they stopped at the Berezovoye crossing station in the Donetsk region a KAMAZ truck loaded with ammunition and two military, one of which "said he was a Russian Major." The border guard said the truck had arrived from Olenevka, which is controlled by the militia.
Later on, speaker of the Ukrainian presidential administration on the punitive mission in Donbass Alexander Motuzyanik said they were identifying the detained men.
"One of them said he was a professional military of the Russian Armed Forces, a Major, and we are still to identify him, as who knows what he could say about himself," the speaker said.
