Russia continues to funnel its troops into eastern Ukraine
Ukrainian military headquarters reports a spike in the number of Russian soldiers in the Donbas.
At least one hundred Russian servicemen have been spotted near Dokuchaevsk, according to the Anti-Terrorist Operation spokesman. This comes as the OSCE, the EU's watchdog on the ground in eastern Ukraine, plans to inspect a water filtration station on militant-occupied territory in Donetsk.
The filtration plant has been coming under fire from Russian-backed separatist forces in recent days. If destroyed it would leave around 400,000 residents without water.
