The routine process of rotation of the Ukrainian military detachment has become controversial, as armed militants surrounding the airport check Ukrainian troops for excessive weaponry.

While leaving the airport area, Ukrainian troops were checked by enemy insurgents, and only “allowed” to have one gun and ammunition per person. 

According to the newly arrived Ukrainian soldiers, they come under fire from Russian-backed militants without any warning, Ukraine Today reports.
