Ukrainian armed forces prepare for urban combat: Basurin

Deputy Commander of the Ministry of defense of DNR Eduard Basurin told the reporters yesterday that according to DNR intelligence, the Ukrainian security forces are preparing for urban combat.

“On the basis of this information, we can conclude that the Ukrainian military are preparing to conduct offensive combat operations in urban environments,” Basurin said.

In April 2014, Kiev began a military operation against the self-proclaimed LNR and DND, which declared independence after the coup in Ukraine in February 2014.

More than 9 thousand people were killed since the operation began, according to United Nations.

The contact group in Minsk has been working since September 2014 for the settlement of the conflict with steps to de-escalate the conflict, including the ceasefire.

However, there are reports that Ukrainian forces continue sporadic shootings and killings civilians in those areas.

Several analysts suggest that a new wave of aggression of the Ukrainian regime is expected to deflect the attention of the Ukrainian population away from economic disaster using “an external threat”, as well as not to allow the EU (the West) to lift the sanctions against Russia in June.
