The self-proclaimed "Donetsk People's Republic" scare residents of occupied Donetsk with possible AFU offensive on May holidays. "Commander of the operational Donetsk command of the Ministry of Defense of the DPR" Denis Sinenko told about the offensive, - reports separatist DAN website.
The offensive could start in areas where clearing operation is taking place now, - he said.
"We are preparing for different versions of the situation development. But everything shows preparing to aggressive actions and intensiication of the "ATO" by the punitive. We think that he AFU will attack in one area with forces supported by three tank battalions. It is a blow at the belly to surround Donetsk at the bottom," - said Sinenko.
According to him, there may be attacks in other areas "somewhere less powerful and somewhere distracting."
As reported earlier, occupying authorities play havoc among the population traditionally before the holidays by spreading disinformation about the alleged offensive of Ukrainian troops.
