SLOVIANSK, April 20. /ITAR-TASS/. People’s volunteer corps in the town of Slavyansk in Ukraine’s Donetsk region have been put on alert over reports about plans to stage attacks on block posts and administrative buildings occupied by the Donetsk People’s Republic, Slavyansk’s people’s mayor Vyacheslav Ponomarev told ITAR-TASS on Sunday.
“We have information that an attack on our positions is planned soon. We are getting prepared to defend ourselves,” he said.
According to Ponomarev, reports have been coming since morning about movements of armed people around the town. Attempts to enter talks have failed. It is not yet clear whether these people are servicemen of regular army units. Representatives of the Donetsk Republic believe they are Right Sector radicals.
