MOSCOW, August 15. /TASS/. Ukraine’s forces have been put on high combat alert in Donbass, defence ministry spokesman of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, Eduard Basurin, said on Saturday citing intelligence.
The Ukrainian army is "strengthening its combat potential" while the DPR is unilaterally withdrawing weaponry of less than 100mm caliber to the distance of three kilometers from the contact line, Basurin told the Donetsk news agency.
The DPR’s defence ministry has repeatedly voiced concerns about Kiev’s military buildup in Donbass saying this is an apparent move to resume full-fledged combat actions.
