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.
