The Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) Minister of defense Igor Strelkov held a special briefing where he reported that according to DPR’s intelligence Ukraine punitive operation forces are planning monstrous acts of terrorism on the territory of Donbass.
On this extra meeting the deputy Prime Minister of the Donetsk People’s Republic Vladimir Antyufeev took part by answering the questions he had foreseen:
“The first: V.V.Putin didn’t telephone me, and I have never met him. The second: My colleagues and I are not FSB members. The third: The forces of Donetsk People’s Republic did not shoot down the Boeing, and Russia didn’t either. The forth: Neither I nor Igor Ivanovich have ever met or known anyone from the Presidential Administration of Russian Federation
Do we expect help of Russia? – Yes, we do expect. And we are getting this help, mostly political help.
How do we suppose to deal with the current situation? – We count upon Russia’s help.”
After this DPR Minister of defense Igor Ivanovich Strelkov reported that Ukraine punitive operation forces are planning a large-scale provocation:
“The intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of People’s Republic of Donetsk has informed me that the contender Ukrainian punitive troops are preparing a big provocation, which should result in declaration of DPR as a terrorist organization. They want to blame us in terrorism and killing the civilian population,” – Strelkov said. “The idea is so monstrous that it is probably hard to believe, especially it is hard to believe for those who haven’t seen the bombardment of populated areas by phosphorous bombs; who haven’t seen people injured by chemical weapons; who haven’t seen how howitzers were shooting at the city center, where the militia headquarters was located, who haven’t seen how mines and missiles were falling a few meters from our headquarters and soon after the Ukrainian mass media telling that we were shooting at ourselves. Shameless, continuous, I would even say phantasmagoric lies, which are spread by Ukranian mass media, and cruel barbaric actions of the Ukraine punitive operation forces show us that nothing is sacred to them. ” – he said.
“According to the data we have got (acknowledged data) – Strelkov said – three rockets are to be launched with the aid of the ballistic missiles “Scarab B” (“Tochka-U”) which were delivered to the airfield Kramatorsk. These missiles are now undergoing maintenance and are prepared for launching. Their aims are Donetsk and Lugansk treatment facilities. For information, the treatment plants possess 120 and 160 tons of chlorine. The alternate target is the Gorlovka “Styrene” mill with a great deal of ammonia. It is assumed that before the missiles launch, a propaganda campaign will be carried out to accuse the militias in preparing attacks on chemical plants in Donetsk and Lugansk. ”
According to Strelkov, knowing all that acts made by Ukrainian troops in Donbass, this information is believable. “The consequences can be appalling. Depending on the wind, chlorine vapor can reach out of Donetsk to Volnovakha. Everything will be killed in this area. People and animal stock will die. Victims may be tens of thousands. They may be much more numerous depending on direction and spread of the gas plume,” – said Igor Strelkov.
He also accentuated that the “militia forces of Donetsk People’s Republic and militia forces of Lugansk People’s Republic don’t take any terrorist actions against people of Ukraine and republic people. Furthermore, “We don’t even fire at the enemy if there is a risk of affecting the civilians. But military forces of Ukraine are hiding, shielding themselves with civilians, doing what they accuse us of”, he said.
DPR Defense Minister hopes his statement would prevent the use of such barbaric methods of punitive operation.
