The Kremlin plans to aggravate the situation, as well as increase tension in the East of Ukraine, in the ATO zone.
“One of the plan’s elements is to bring the intensity of the attacks to the highest level over the last year, provoking our soldiers to local military clashes. This trend is clearly recorded on the contact line, where they do not want to fulfill the requirements of the Minsk agreements on withdrawal the troops to the previously approved demarcation line,” said the Head of the Ukrainian Security Service SBU department Anatoly Dublik, a QHA correspondent reports.
According to him, the Russian Federation aims to conduct an offensive in Donbas and use the difficult social situation in the state.
“SBU continues to take steps in exposing and blocking Russia's encroachment on the constitutional system of Ukraine. Within the legal framework only, without violating anyone's rights, we will detect and deter such intentions, and report, without hiding these facts,” the department stated.
Earlier it was reported that the Russian Federation was plotting provocations on the territory of Ukraine in order to initiate the early parliamentary elections in the country.
