According to him, the risk that the Ukrainian military will launch an offensive is very high. He said, referring to intelligence data and local population’s reports from the Ukrainian controlled territory, that “intensive movement of convoys of military equipment and armoured vehicles have been noticed in some areas.”
“We also have our sources that told us that major enemy forces are being aligned in the north-western and north-eastern direction,” the LPR deputy defence minister said.
He said “the Ukrainian side has deployed the Smerch multiple rocket launch systems in the Novoaidar settlement.”
“Lisichansk, Severodonetsk, Starobelsk - these are the settlements in which the enemy has amassed a vast number of personnel and military hardware, including the Grad multiple launch rocket systems and Tochka U tactical missile systems,” Kiselev said.
