MOSCOW, August 26. /TASS/. The defense ministry of the self-proclaimed Donetsk republic has reported Kiev’s sizeable military buildup along the contact line in Donbas, official spokesman Eduard Basurin said on Wednesday.
"Up to 4,000 people, including two tank battalions [60 tanks], and also armored vehicles, infantry combat vehicles, self-propelled artillery systems and vehicles are confirmed to have arrived in the Chasov Yar village [some 20 kilometers from the contact line]," the Donetsk news agency quoted Basurin as saying.
The arrival of the Buk M1 missile system has been spotted in the village of Nikolayevka, the defense ministry spokesman said.
Basurin said the Kiev forces continue preparing for the offensive in Donbas. This has been confirmed by the increase in overnight shellings of residential areas in the region, he said.
