The Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) noted a redeployment of Ukrainian forces, regarding it as a preparation for hostilities.
This announcement comes several days after Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky shuffled around the military leadership of the Ukrainian Armed Forces (UAF), and specifically the commander of the Donbass operation.
The statement by the DPR, released on August 6th, is the following:
“Our intelligence obtained information on preparation and deployment to the front positions of units and subunits of the reserve of the UAF towards Mariupol.
According to data obtained from the headquarters of the invaders [Ukraine], as well as from local residents of the settlements occupied by the UAF in the south of Donetsk region, we received information regarding the firing positions of the 152-mm and 122-mm artillery installations of the 406th artillery brigade of the Navy in the areas of TERNOE, KIROVO, ANDREYEVKA.
The reserve units of the 36th and 35th Marine Brigades advanced to the front and were deployed into battle formations.
In MARIUPOL, the Azov [“Volunteer” Battalion] and the units of the 56th motorized infantry brigade remaining at their permanent deployment positions were raised on alarm. The invaders [Ukraine] moved to the concentration area in the north of the city, ready to arrive at the forefront.
In addition, along the contact line, there is an increased activity of enemy unmanned aerial vehicles, conducting air reconnaissance. So far, our defenders have destroyed TWO invader UAVs.
We regard such actions of the Ukrainian side as direct preparation for active hostilities against our Republic.
We do not exclude the possibility that in the near future the Ukrainian invaders will carry out terrorist acts near the front line in order to create an occasion to launch an offensive, the victims of which will be UAF fighters or civilians.
We do not need any more bloodshed in the Donbass!”
The following is an earlier map presenting the reported positions and potential vectors of offensive, approximately 90,000 fighters are presumed to be deployed.
It should be reminded that on August 5th at the contact line in the Donbass a group of Ukrainian military personnel blew up while attempting an unauthorized dismantling of metal structures on the territory of one of the mines.
“Two Ukrainian military personnel from the team of marauders of the 92nd brigade, taking advantage of the observance of the ceasefire on our part, began to cut the metal structures of mine equipment near the contact line … as a result, both of them were blown up by a mine,” the DPR People’s Militia said. The incident took place in the city of Avdeevka, in close proximity to the contact line. Later reports claimed that at least four had died.
The Ukrainian side blaimed the death of four Ukrainian soldiers [the same ones who were blown up by a mine, according to the DPR People’s Militia] on actions by members of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR). In Donetsk, these statements were called untrue, adding that the incident occurred too far from the contact line, outside the radius of destruction of the republic’s armed forces.
On August 7th, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said he spoke to Russian President Vladimir Putin over the phone, to discuss the situation in the Donbass.
“Today in the morning I spoke with President of Russia Vladimir Putin about this, I called him immediately, I said that this [death of the Ukrainian servicemen in a presumed attack] does not bring us close to peace, I ask you to influence that sides [the fighters in the Donbas] to stop murdering our people,” Zelensky said.
He also noted that they talked about demining of Stanytsia Luhanska and returning of captured Ukrainians. Zelensky commented on Putin’s reaction in brief.
“I tell them that our people are being killed, and I am told that there are some details, where our people shot at civilians,” he said.
Zelensky said that he also raised issues of reducing the time for building a bridge in the region of Luhansk and the topic of the return of Ukrainian prisoners. “We had a long conversation,” he said.
On August 6th, Zelensky called on leaders of Norman-format countries – Russian President Vladimir Putin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron – to get together as soon as possible in order to conduct negotiations over the situation in the region.

“electrical worker” that is able to shut down military aircraft. Russia invaded Chechenya in 10 years, a country 100 times smaller.
Here, 5000 shekels for you, good goy.
Putin: Bibi please tell me if you strike Syria tonight so I can hide my peeps. Bibi: will call you at 4 am if I can’t sleep. Putin: Bibi please, I’m an old man Bibi: I can’t say with those facial surgeries if you are a bitch in my harem *phone closes*
Russia invaded Chechenya?
More like Russia defended the Dagestan, which was territory dependent on Russia, when the CIA financed terrorists, decided it would be a good idea to invade Dagestan. Now, they got a major surprise when Russia fought back, didn’t they?
I was looking for the video, featuring President Putin, who went to visit his Forces, in Chechenya, on Christmas Day, or was it New Year’s Day? Having to make most of the journey by car, owing to weather conditions, and not wishing to let his men down. Could not find it, but, nice to be reminded of the Unknown Putin videos. What a leader, what a statesman. No wonder he is voted year on year, the ‘Top World Statesman’.

Thousands of putins vacationing troops are home now and they are 6 feet under dufus .
Do believe you are mistaking the Russians for those who were left to rot in the cauldrons, back in 2014.
Not forgetting what happened to the Canadian Forces, and only hours after arriving in Ukraine, back in the old days.

Toronto Tonto = occupybacon = the same pathetic $1 romanian whore troll, paid to suck dicks and troll this site.
Do they pay him as much as $1 a day?
Perhaps add you Jew scum in the mix too eh :)
Like what happened with regards the Donetsk Cauldrons and Donetsk Airport scenario, back in the summer of 2014?
How many kiddies, whose parents served in the NATO Forces or Ukraine Forces, are still waiting for mummy or daddy to come home? Unaware, they have been left rotting in the Monsanto/Beyer compost of Ukraine?
Do you remember Angela Merkel, running to the Kremlin? The only place the US and Israel could not eavesdrop on as she begged for help?
Do miss Givi and Motorola – RIP, brave men.

Didn’t that strange person, over in the US State Department, under Obama, state something similar, just before the Alexandre Ensemble were taken out in a plane crash?
Then you head the Deputy of the CIA, bragging about sending messages, just before the Russian Ambassador to Turkey was taken out.
Not forgetting Niki Haley, stating what they would do to those that did not cover the backs of the US, over in the UN, just a couple of days before the Russian permanent envoy to the UN collapsed on the streets of New York, dying, just hours later. A week after the half brother of North Korea’s President was taken out by a bio-assassination attempt?
Now over in Iran, the US do not want their Forces coming home in body bags and have begged the EU to provide the cannon fodder instead.

As pressure is put on the US Coalition if Terror in Syria, so does the pressure by the US terror gangs increase against civilians within the two breakaway away republics of Ukraine.
The US has never really been imaginative in attempts to subjugate her victims.
Uki Jew and NAZI controlled arseholes could not fight in a Tel-Aviv gay mardi gras, let alone Russia or the Don Bas freedom fighters.
Remember August 2014 and the cauldrons?
Merkel rushing to the Kremlin, the only place the US could not eavesdrop on, as she begged for help. So many NATO Forces were allegedly stuck in the cauldrons. Minsk II Agreement, but, Ukraine never bothered with it, now did they? The brave miners and farmers of Donetsk, stated this would be the last time, they took a break, from those from Kiev, that were using ballistics and white phospherous weapons, to take out the innocent civilians over in Donetsk.
Well, the Comedian come President, who is mentored by Kolomoisky and Soros, is now trying to get on the phone to the Kremlin, begging for yet more peace talks, for Kiev to ignore. No doubt SS Volker, is standing behind him, demanding that the US and UK get involved in the next round of talks. Now why, did Kiev ignore the Minsk II Agreements? When does Russia stop delivering gas to Ukraine, via the transit pipelines? Not many more months to go?
