Gradual Ukrainian Operation Against Separatists Underway

Yesterday (Tuesday), Ukranian forces began what they call a ‘special operation’ against separatist militia wreaking havoc in the eastern region of the country. Action thus far has been limited to the landing of airborne troops in the area.

After disembarking from 2 helicopters at a Kramatorsk airfield and being met with gunfire and a civilian-manned barricade, the troops withdrew into the safety of their barracks. No further military action has been reported as of yet.
