On July 1, it appeared that a US-supplied Humvee vehicle of the Ukrainian Armed Forces had been destroyed at a contact line with forces of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) in eastern Ukraine. The Ukrainian side said that the Humvee was a medical vehicle targeted by an anti-tank guided missile (what is not likely because it has a specially installed bracer for machine gun). The DPR rejected the Ukrainian claims saying that its forces had not targeted the vehicle. According to the DPR, the incident was a provocation to escalate the tensions in the region. Local sources speculate that the vehicle blew up on a Ukrainian mine installed in the area.
