DPR militants want to attack schools on September 1 to call for Russian "peacekeepers"
The militants of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) terrorist organization are planning to attack schools on September 1 and call for the introduction of Russian "peacekeeping troops," presidential administration spokesman for the Anti-Terrorist Operation Colonel Andriy Lysenko said at a briefing in Kyiv on Sunday, according to an UNIAN correspondent.
"According to Ukrainian security services, the DPR militants have developed a plan of provocative actions by September 1. This is a cynical crime - the shelling of schools and other educational institutions in the region and the Ukrainian armed forces will be accused of it," he said.
"The Kremlin-backed mercenaries are planning to use this provocation as a pretext for request to Russia to officially introduce the so-called "peacekeeping forces." We call on everyone to be vigilant, especially the inhabitants of eastern Ukraine," Lysenko said.
