MOSCOW, April 11. /TASS/. The pace of the special military operation in Donbass will be stepped up, the leader of the Donetsk People’s Republic, Denis Pushilin, said on Monday.
"Given the combination of factors in the current complex situation in which the people have found themselves, and also the provocations being staged by the regime in Kiev, including the bombardment of Kramatorsk, we believe that the liberation operation must be intensified," Pushilin said on Russia’s Rossiya-24 round-the-clock television news channel.
"I cannot mention any details for the time being, it will be possible to see everything in real time very soon," Pushilin said.
Russian President Vladimir Putin on February 24 responded to a request for help from the leaders of two Donbass republics with a decision to launch a special military operation in Ukraine with the aim of the country’s demilitarization and denazification.
