FLY. Hostilities in Ukraine are still very likely, Kiev’s aggressive rhetoric suggests a possible military scenario in the Donbass. This was stated by the spokesman of the Kremlin, Dmitry Peskov, quoted by TASS.
Meanwhile, the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) does not rule out seeking Russian assistance if full-scale fighting against Ukrainian troops begins in the Donbass. This was stated by the head of the DPR Denis Pushilin. “We will act according to the situation. Beyond any doubt, we are counting on our strength, but considering that Ukraine is engaging more and more external forces – and we see it clearly – I do not rule it out, ”said Pushilin. The forces of the DPR are in a state of maximum alert, he stressed.
