Ukrainian Border Guard Service press secretary Oleh Slobodian reports Russia has begun supplying special purpose vehicles (SPVs) to Kremlin-backed militants in occupied Donbas, according to an UNIAN correspondent.

"On April 18, the Russian side launched the unauthorized delivery of a large batch (over 100 SPVs) to separate areas in Donetsk and Luhansk regions through the [officially] closed Dovzhansky checkpoint allegedly for the needs of the so-called 'Ministry of Emergency Situations' of the separatist quasi-state," he said at a briefing in Kyiv on Thursday.
