According to the DPR intelligence, Kiev junta has redeployed artillery, tanks, IFVs (infantry fighting vehicles) and APCs (armored personnel carriers), up to 30 pieces of military hardware in total, as well as punitive troops to the area of Gorlovka. “These actions clearly indicate militants’ intention to destroy the emerging sprouts of fragile peace,” Donetsk News Agency quotes a representative of Donetsk People’s Republic Ministry of Defense.
“Ukrainian military conduct a buildup of forces and means to carry out acts of provocation against DPR in the area of Zaitsevo and Golmovsky region. The enemy uses Ukrainian Armed Forces units as well as nationalist battalions ‘Aidar’ and ‘Azov'” warns the Defense Ministry staff.
Residents of the junta-controlled areas of the Lugansk region are also concerned that militants draw up arms and heavy weaponry to the separation line. Citing local residents, law enforcement officials of DPR report: “Moving convoys of heavy tracked armored vehicles and personnel carriers were spotted on November 13, 2015 in Stanitsa Luganskaya.” According to law enforcement of LPR, the equipment is located on the territory of the former recreation center.
