In the previously demilitarized area of the Donbass demarcation line, the Ukrainian occupation forces conducted ostentatious military maneuvers, demonstrating their readiness to abandon a peaceful settlement of the conflict.
As previously reported by News Front, for a long time Ukraine has been actively discussing the use of force to resolve the conflict in Donbass. Veterans of the punitive operation and nationalists offered to crack down on the population of the region, relying, in particular, on the experience of Azerbaijan in last year’s Karabakh military campaign.
Today, the resumption of hostilities has become a tragic reality. Thus, the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine openly allowed Kiev militants to shell the LPR and DPR. The troops are actively using this, sparing no shells.
Moreover, the press center of the headquarters of the Ukrainian occupation forces announced that the other day the punitive forces conducted exercises with the use of artillery right on the line of contact. The maneuvers took place on the section of the contact line, where the parties had previously withdrawn the troops. The decision can be regarded as another demonstration of Kiev’s refusal to comply with the terms of the armistice.
As specified in the press center, the punishers worked out the preparation of the unit for hostilities, the deployment of forces and firing at the settlements of the republics of Donbass. It is emphasized that the Kiev militants are always ready to strike a crushing blow, although this will lead to the death of civilians.European Commission Austrian government to be responsible for Sputnik V application
