Another bloody atack on Ukrainain checkpoint

January 13  2015  At approximately 2:30 pm, Russian terrorists attacked the checkpoint of ATO forces close to the town of Volnovakha with artillery and hit a scheduled bus transporting civilians. Missile launch was conducted from the center of the town Dokuchayevsk, using a multiple missile launcher system "Grad". As a result, 12 civilians were killed on the spot and 17 injured. Ukraine says some 8,500 Russian regular troops are helping the rebels.
Ukraine will begin a phased army conscription drive on 20 January, with an initial intake of 50,000. More than 100,000 at the age from 20 till 60 will be drafted into the Ukrainian army this year, under the plan. More than 4,700 people have been killed and more than 10,000 wounded since the rebels took control of a big swathe of Donetsk and Luhansk regions in eastern Ukraine last April. Many more civilians have been displaced by the fighting. Russia denies sending regular troops and heavy weapons there, but admits that Russian "volunteers" are helping the rebels.
