"With the recent supplies of weapons to the eastern Ukraine that we have observed over the past few weeks, the pro-Russian fighters have strengthened their military capabilities, and being supported by Russia they are capable of, and possibly will push to capturing new territories along the demarcation line," Breedlove said.

He added that he was very concerned about this possibility.
