Ukrainian troops are
finalizing preparations for the offensive on the Donbass and they can attack
the militia at any moment. This was said by the Deputy Commander of the corps of the Ministry
of defense DPR Eduard Basurin on August, 24. According to him, a signal to begin
the attack may come from Poroshenko during his visit to Germany, scheduled for
“Eight MLRS “Hurricane” and two
MLRS “Smerch have been located southeast of Artyomovsk”, 15 tanks have
been located south of Selidovo, a movement of columns of military equipment
with up to 10 units has been spotted in the direction of Neytalovo” – said
Basurin, while speaking about the concentration of Ukrainian troops.
In addition, a battalion of the national guard
of Ukraine have arrived near the village of Dmitrovka.
The recent UAF shellings clearly indicate the
escalation of tensions in the region. The militia has recorded 14 cases of
ceasefire violations. The Ukrainian media reported that one soldier of the UAF
was killed in the area of so-called ATO.
On Monday in Berlin a meeting of the leaders
of France, Germany and Ukraine is scheduled. The DPR leadership encourages the
guarantors of the Minsk agreements – Angela Merkel and Francois Hollande to
convince Poroshenko to return to peaceful dialogue, without the use of weapons.
