About 120,000 Ukrainian troops are observed near the line of contact in Donbass, Denis Pushilin, head of the self-proclaimed DPR, claims. According to him, technology is constantly coming there.
In addition, the DPR receives information about the presence of foreign private military companies (PMCs) near the line of contact. However, there is no 100% confirmation of this information yet, Pushilin said on the air of the SolovyovLive program.
Pushilin also stressed that the DPR, despite the hysteria in the Western media, is not at all preparing an offensive towards Kiev. However, they are preparing for an attack from Ukraine itself. In this regard, the republic periodically checks the coherence of its units and emergency services.
Kiev and Western states have recently been concerned about the alleged increase in “aggressive actions” by Russia near the borders of Ukraine. Moscow has denied these accusations many times. The Russian authorities point out that the “Russian aggression” talk is being used as a pretext to place more NATO military equipment near the country’s borders.
