The Donetsk People’s Republic militant organization has put its troops in full combat readiness and is spreading rumors about an upcoming attack on territories controlled by the Ukrainian government, National Security and Defense Council spokesman Andriy Lysenko said at a briefing in Kyiv on Wednesday, according to an UNIAN correspondent.


"According to intelligence reports, the leaders of the DPR have put their troops on full alert, calling on the militants to return back from health treatment in Crimea, and Russia, as well as in other places," he said.

"The enemy is actively spreading rumors about the beginning of active military actions and an attack on the territories controlled by the Ukrainian government, and is trying to accuse the Ukrainian armed forces in advance of disrupting the ceasefire," Lysenko said.
