Pro-Russian forces in breakaway areas of Luhansk and Donetsk in eastern Ukraine, have shot down a Turkish-made combat Drone being operated by the Ukrainian Army. Shots have now been fired.
This web site has been reporting the build-up of troops, tanks, and armor, by the Ukrainian government, being positioned for use against the breakaway Luhansk and Donetsk Oblasts (states). Stories HERE, and HERE
Covert Intel reported that March 15 was likely to be the day when Ukraine commences a full scale military offensive to forcibly seize the two breakaway oblasts.
Today, March 14, the Ukraine military sent an armed combat drone, manufactured in Turkey, over the breakaway republics. It is this exact type of drone that was used with devastating efficiency, allowing Azerbaijan to forcibly seize part of Armenia late last year. Now, Ukraine is sending the same drone over Luhansk and Donetsk.
Below is an image of the drone that has been shot down in Ukraine:
To give readers a better understanding of where all this is taking place, below are two maps. The first shows Ukraine with the two breakaway Oblasts, Luhansk and Donetsk, highlighted:
This second map show whose troops are presently where. The colored lines show what’s what.
Red is Russia. The solid Red line are Russian Troops along the Russian Border; a LOT of them now.
Farther west, red dots are either Russian or Pro-Russian Troops from Luhansk and Donetsk.
Blue is the Ukraine Army and elements of NATO nations like Britain the USA.
Yellow is where skirmishes are taking place. The Contact line.
The area from blue moving right (east) to the solid red is where this trouble is very likely to become full scale war; quite possibly within the next 24 hours.
