Major escalation in the war last night after Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered Russian troops into two separatist pro-Moscow regions in eastern Ukraine after recognizing their independence on Monday.
Russia's upper house of parliament also approved sending the soldiers into Ukraine.
Meanwhile earlier today around 5 am local time three civilians were killed on the road between Donetsk and Gorlovka. Two bombs planted by saboteurs exploded under a passing civilian car. The target was a military vehicle that had passed a minute before the attack but the completely random civilian one was the one that actually got blown up.
