Russian military near Kharkiv border bear "peacekeeper" markings

An armored column of Russian personnel carriers allegedly recorded near Belgorod were seen with blue ‘peacekeeper’ (MC) markings fixed to their rear. This story was affirmed by Mark MacKinnon, senior international correspondent for The Globe and Mail. Street signs in the video confirm the column to be near Razumnoye.

Throughout the day, multiple witness accounts of the symbol appearing on Russian military units in the region were also uploaded by separate users, strengthening the supporting evidence of the ‘peacekeeping’ convoy operating dangerously near Kharkiv.

There has been no official explanation for the units’ presence, but Russia has ratcheted up rhetoric and claims of Ukrainian forces shelling positions in Russia in recent days. Pretext for the invasion of Georgia in 2008 also included claims of Russian peacekeepers dying in Tskhinvali during the Georgian military response to the ongoing South Ossetian insurgency. A similar assault is precipitating in both Donetsk and Luhansk, where Russian-backed insurgents are concentrated and largely surrounded.

Below is a gallery of other Russian ‘peacekeeping’ units bearing the blue MC mark, principally during the occupation of Georgia / South Ossetia.

  1. Has he reported that in his articles? Or do Ukrainians just get to read about Russia’s filth.

  2. Can someone explain what’s going on with the supposed UN troops? Why doesn’t anyone seem to know who these people are?

  3. Putin’s doing this just to keep the stress level high on Ukraine and reassure the pig running Belarus. Putin cannot afford an all out war and his military can’t do it anyway. Russia will also explode from within–there will be a regional war. He has a lot to lose by sending armor into Ukraine, besides his armor and russian cannon fodder.

    Putin the pig sure knows how to unite other countries….against him anyway, lalalalalalalalalal

  4. I didn’t see one picture of happy people in Slavyansk thanking the Ukrainian soldiers for “liberating” the city. So my conclusion is that there is a civil war in Ukraine and I fully agree with the Russians that a peacekeeping mission is necessary. I am not saying the peacekeepers should be Russians.

  5. Nato should send their peacekeepers to Eastern Ukraine. Please give Ukraine nuclear weapons so they can respond to the russian attacks.
