DTN News - UKRAINE CRISIS: Separatists Shoot Down Ukrainian Helicopter
(NSI News Source Info) TORONTO, Canada - May 29, 2014: A member of a newly-formed pro-Russian armed group called the Russian Orthodox Army mans a barricade near Donetsk airport, May 29, 2014.
The White House says Thursday's shootdown of a government helicopter by pro-Russian separatists in Ukraine indicates rebels have access "to advanced weaponry and other assistance from outside."
Spokesman Jay Carney's comments came just hours after Ukraine's acting president said rebels downed the aircraft with a shoulder-launched missile. He said 14 servicemen, including a general, died in the attack near the flashpoint eastern city of Slovyansk.
