As it was reported earlier there is a lot of evidence of Russian involvement in the ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine. Alexander Vershbow, the former Assistant Secretary General of NATO said that in a recent interview.

According to him, the war in eastern Ukraine would have been over for a long time if Russia ceased to supply weapons to militants. 'There are many tanks without Russian insignia, but we all are aware where they come from... The conflict has been lasting for more than four years now - mainly due to the lasting Russian aggression,' he said.
