KYIV - Three Ukrainian-backed paramilitary groups that purport to be made up of Russians opposed to the Kremlin said on Thursday their forces were continuing their cross-border attacks following a week of raids.

Mr Alexei Baranovsky of the Freedom of Russia Legion, "Kholod" of the Siberian Battalion, and Mr Denis Kapustin of the Russian Volunteer Corps give a press conference of pro-Ukraine Russian paramilitary groups in Kyiv.

They said they received intelligence and logistics support from the Ukrainian armed forces, but repeated their assertion that they were acting independently of Kyiv when fighting on Russian territory.However, asked about the provenance of the unit's weapons, Mr Kapustin smiled and said that one could buy tanks and rocket launcher systems in a military surplus shop.
