(MENAFN - Arab News) NOVOAZOVSK Ukraine: Pro-Russia separatists relaxed and well-equipped held firm control on Friday of the strategic coastal town of Novoazovsk a day after Ukraine claimed tanks and armored vehicles had invaded from Russia.

Associated Press reporters saw at least a half-dozen tanks in the town of about 12000 people bearing the flags of Novorossiya the would-be state proclaimed by rebels in two eastern Ukraine regions. None of the tanks bore Russian markings but ready-made meals seen near one of the tanks carried markings that they were issued by the Russian army.

"There is no Russian equipment coming through here. We are fighting with the Ukrainian forces. They just dump it and flee" said a rebel commander who identified himself only by the nom-de-guerre Frantsuz (The Frenchman).
