The Kremlin has denied having any links to hundreds of tanks allegedly spotted in eastern Ukraine.

Presidential spokesperson Dmitry Peskov repeated claims that Moscow was not involved in arming separatists, despite allegations that 700 tanks had been seen in the Donbas region.

Peskov also denied that Russia was sending fighters into the region. “Volunteers are not moving through official channels,” he said. “We know that there are Russian citizens there, but they are volunteers who went to the area to protect local people from aggressive Ukrainian forces.”

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko told U.S. news network CNN in September 2016 that Russia had sent 700 tanks to aid separatist fighters in the Donbass region.  He also claimed that Moscow had sent more than 1,250 artillery systems, 1,000 armed personnel carriers, and 300 multi-rocket launch systems.   https://themoscowtimes.com/news/moscow-says-it-has-nothing-to-do-with-hundreds-of-tanks-in-eastern-ukraine-57117

An “imminent” terror attack on French soil has been averted with the arrest of four suspects in Montpellier, Interior Minister Bruno Le Roux said.

Three men and a girl of 16 were found with bomb-making materials by anti-terrorist police in a raid on a flat in the southern city.

Home-made explosives similar to those used in the Paris attacks of November 2015 were discovered.

Reports suggest the girl had made jihadist declarations online….

Separately, prosecutors in Denmark charged a 16-year-old girl with attempted terrorism for allegedly planning to bomb two schools in and around Copenhagen, one of them Jewish.  The girl, a convert to Islam, was arrested in Kundby, near the capital, in January last year, and had been held in custody ever since.  http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-38930201
