‘Four Russian helicopters were spotted in the sky over the administrative border with Crimea. These were Mi-8s and Mi-24s. Yesterday, the Ukrainian servicemen spotted seven choppers that performed reconnaissance flights over the border with the occupied Crimea, without crossing the border.  The Russian military also continues to use air balloons for aerial reconnaissance; they hang up in the air at the height of about one kilometer. Until yesterday, we observed military vehicles approaching Russian positions in the occupied Crimea, at the administrative border with Ukraine’. Oleg Slobodyan, the spokesman of Ukraine’s State Border Guard, said this in commentary by phone on Friday.

Slobodyan added that such activity has been lasting for several days now; it started before the so-called elections for the Russian parliament, which also included the Russian-annexed Crimea.
