KIEV, March 24. /TASS/. The United States is already supplying weapons to the Ukrainian armed forces, the head of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, Alexander Zakharchenko, has said.
"The United States is already supplying weapons there. For instance, in Debaltsevo we saw US ammunition. That’s a lethal weapon," he told a news briefing. "NATO planes land at the airports of Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhia and Kharkiv every day."
Zakharchenko said that Ukraine was bringing back heavy weapons to the line of disengagement.
"Ukraine has not pulled back weapons. It is bringing them back. The pullout was a fake," he said.
The militias are expecting more provocations by Ukraine’s volunteer battalions, "which have already said they are not obeying orders from Kiev," he said.
In case the situation gets worse, Zakharchenko said, the Ukrainian forces may mount attacks in three directions - south, north-western and in the area of Debaltsevo to cut the Donetsk Republic away from the Luhansk Republic.
"The way I see the situation, I believe there will be three attacks," Zakharchenko said. "The main group of the Ukrainian forces is concentrated in the areas of Volnovakha, Krasnogolovka, Artyomovsk, Kurakhovo and other communities.
