NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen set the tone for a NATO summit by saying that “Russia is attacking Ukraine” and continuing to destabilize the situation in eastern Ukraine despite a cease-fire plan proposed by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Russian state television for the first time showed the funeral of a Russian serviceman who died in Donbas. However, the audience was told that he went to fight the Ukrainian army on his own volition while on holiday leave. Pskov councilman tells about Russian soldiers killed in Ukraine: “They weren’t just deceived – they were humiliated. When the whole chain of command is publicly lying – that’s humiliating.”
