Ukraine Troops, APCs Storm Occupied Slavyansk (ZeroHedge, April 15, 2014):

As we reported earlier, Ukraine finally unleashed a military action to the “pro-Russian separatists” in “pro-Russian separatist” occupied Slavyansk and other east Ukraine towns. And now, we get to see it in action. From Bloomberg:

  • UKRAINE UNITS STORMING CITY HELD BY PRO-RUSSIAN PROTESTERS: RIA
  • UKRAINIAN TROOPS, APCS ENTER SLOVYANSK, RIA SAYS
  • MILITARY STORM AIRFIELD IN E. UKRAINE, WOUNDED REPORTED: RT

The response by Putin, who has repeatedly warned against precisely this escalation, is now expected momentarily.

The Ukrainian government is out with some comments:

  • UKRAINIAN 1ST DEP. PREMIER YAREMA COMMENTS ON CHANNEL 5 TV
  • UKRAINE GOVT SAYS HAS IDENTIFIED RUSSIAN MILITARY IN SLOVYANSK
  • UKRAINE GOVT: RUSSIAN 45TH AIRBORNE IN SLOVYANSK, KRAMATORSK
