Speaking at a briefing, Andriy Lysenko said the reports that Ukraine’s forces “are preparing for an offensive after the elections to the Ukrainian Verkhovna Rada” are false.
Deputy defense minister of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR), Vitaly Kiselev, did not rule out on Sunday that the Ukrainian military could stage provocations to disrupt the elections of the LPR parliament and head due on November 2.
The risk that the Ukrainian military could launch an offensive is “very high,” he said referring to intelligence data and reports from the Ukrainian controlled territory.
More than three million people are expected to take part in the elections in the self-proclaimed republics of Donetsk and Luhansk in eastern Ukraine next Sunday.
The leader of the Luhansk People's Republic (LPR) Igor Plotnitsky earlier said he doubts that the Ukrainian parliamentary elections on October 26 were legitimate.
