Also, according to the Director of the Center for Political and Military Studies Dmytro Tymchuk, the break through the Ukrainian national border was possible because of a number of reasons and one of them is Russian plane that monitors the near-border territories for the presence of Ukrainian planes.
“Not only Russian border guards but also Russian Army Forces are responsible for breaking through the Ukrainian border by the major groups of gunmen and machinery columns (including the war ones). For instance, while mercenary groups were crossing the border together with the weapon cargo, Russian air near the border was controlled by Beriev A-50 (NATO reporting name “Mainstay”). His aim was to locate Ukrainian war planes that could have interfere into the operation regarding sending mercenaries to Ukraine. Also, while gunmen groups were crossing Ukrainian border from Russia, Russian unmanned aerial vehicle was scanning the territory.”
