DPR warns about a possible offensive by Ukrainian forces
While Russian forces are amassing alongside Ukrainian Border, Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) warns about Ukrainian attack alongside Azov sea with the aim to recapture Novoazovsk. According to DPR, Ukrainian will launch its offensive on 14th December as a reaction on a staged attack on the chemical plant near Mariupol. It’s highly unlikely that Ukrainian Forces will launch an offensive but we’ll watch the events closely.
Basurin of DNR “with urgent address” says that on 14 December there will be “a chemical provocation at Mariupol Illiycha plant with UAV to detonate warehouse with ammonia” to launch an offensive https://t.co/Qo0dColIi1 pic.twitter.com/Xcxu745sdg via @666_mancer #Ukraine
