MOSCOW, August 10. /TASS/. Spokesman for the defence ministry of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic [DPR] Eduard Basurin said on Monday allegations about possible Russian provocations in Donbass are "sheer lunacy."
Earlier on Monday, Ukraine’s National Security and Defence Council circulated a statement by its chairman Alexander Turchinov alleging that "Russian secret services are plotting bloody provocations with enormous death toll." "This bloody crime is planned to be disguised as an offensive of Ukrainian troops in retaliation to numerous provocations," Turchinov said in the statement.
Basurin said Turchinov was a "mad man" and called on him to "come to himself." "You personally and your accomplices in Kiev have committed so many war crimes in Donbass that without any tribunal the responsibility for numerous deaths of civilians will rest not only on you but on your descendants," the Donetsk News Agency quoted him as saying.
He said it was insane to speak about any provocations disguised as Ukrainian offensives in Ukraine. "These lethal strikes at the Donetsk People’s Republic killing children and old people every day are our routine life for more than one year," Basurin said.
