The leader of the "DPR" Alexander Zakharchenko said that he was looking forward to the exacerbation of hostilities in Donbass. He said this in one of the propagandist talk shows on Russian TV channel "Rossiya-1".
"I already want it (the aggravation of fighting - OstroV) to begin as soon as possible and to end soon. So they could not blame us that we started first. This is the most important reason why we do not do it", - he said, without specifying that his subordinate militants shell positions of the ATO forces with heavy weapons daily.
Also Zakharchenko made his "outlook" on Ukraine. "Now (after the actual "nationalization” of the Ukrainian businesses in the occupied territory - OstroV) the countdown began. Every day is the nail that is hammered into the coffin lid of the country, which was called Ukraine. Maximum 60 days - and the state will virtually cease to exist", - he said.
