Photo shows communist troops in east Ukraine

The US State Department has released photos of soldiers in eastern Ukraine, which it says show that some of the fighters are Russian special forces.
The BBC is unable to verify the pictures, which were provided by Ukrainian diplomats.
But this picture appears to identify Karl Marx as one of the pro-Russian separatists.There was no immediate response to the pictures from the Russian government.

Pro-Russian militants are holding official buildings in towns
and cities in the east. However, Russia has denied it has any soldiers
in Ukraine.
