Ukrainian military says ‘100 Russian servicemen' spotted near Dokuchaevsk' (updated with video)

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.
