MOSCOW, August 12. /TASS/. Return to full-scale military action may happen at any time since the number of shellings by Ukrainian forces already stands at 60-80 times per day, the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) envoy to Contact Group Denis Pushilin told a roundtable in TASS on Wednesday.
"The number of shellings during full-scale military actions is 150-180 times per day, with the average number of shellings during the main time fluctuating from 10 to 30 times," Pushilin said. "Now we register from 60 to 80 shellings per day. The situation is as follows: full-scale military actions can be resumed at any moment."
"Going from 60 to 150 shellings can happen in a few hours. These concerns are strengthened by military equipment drawn to the contact line by Ukrainian forces, as well as by shellings of residential areas," the envoy noted. "Along with that, we see that Kiev does not officially withdraw from Minsk-2. Kiev probably understands as well that if Minsk-2 ceases to exist, then the only alternative is war," he concluded.
