Editorial Comment

Various reports that Kiev concentrates troops and artillery near the contact line with the Donetsk People’s Republic are extremely alarming considering the current escalating situation in the Lugansk People’s Republic. Ukraine might take advantage of the Lugansk tension to violate the Minsk agreements. Another exacerbation of the hot war is possible.
