The Ukrainian military is massively deploying military equipment, including battle tanks, to a contact line with forces of the Donetsk and Luganks People’s Republics, according to a video obtained by ANNA-NEWS.
The video shows a train with heavy military equipment (about 30 battle tanks, 5-6 BMP vehicles and other) and troops are moving in the direction of the city of Donetsk. The video was filmed in the Kiev-controlled town of Zaporojie.
At the same time, sporadic clashes and artillery duels continued between pro-Kiev and DRP/LPR forces in the region of Donbass.
Earlier, DPR and LPR representatives claimed that the Ukrainian military had already concentrated an armoured striking group to advance in the region.
Meanwhile, the Ukrainian Air Force deployed Su-25 attack aircraft in the region of the Sea of Azov and the Ukrainian Navy started “drills” near its seaports in the sea. These drills are linked to the recent tensions between Ukraine and Russia in the region.
According to some pro-DRP/LPR experts and Russian parliamentary members, the Ukrainian military may start a military operation against the DPR and the LPR or may carry out military provocations in the region of Donbass amid the World Cup 2018 in Russia.
