Geoffrey Pyatt: armed gangs are part of Russian army

The separatists in eastern Ukraine at this point are a de facto extension of Russian military and an instrument of Russian national power, writes U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine on his Twitter.

"Russian mil also put in place a robust command structure in eastern Ukraine ranging from General officers overseeing ops to junior officers. Russian personnel conduct communications, intelligence gathering, direct operations and help correct artillery fire," Pyatt wrote.

He noted that he had evidence of Russian military personnel participating in the recent attacks on Vuhlehirsk and Debaltseve.

Also, according to the Ambassador, Russia consolidated control over the separatist movement in August by removing problematic separatist leaders who didn't follow Instructions.

It should be recalled that Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to Ukraine Jeffrey Payette said that this year, the U.S. military assistance to Ukraine would amount to about $ 120 million. Last year, financial aid was $ 118 million.
