According to Bezsonov, the military arrived at the headquarters of the OTG Vostok, as well as at the 56 motorized infantry and 406 artillery brigades deployed near the settlement of Urzuf.
The DPR command does not exclude that foreign military arrivals will be directly involved in the planning of offensive actions, he said.
There is no doubt that the appearance of foreigners is connected with the preparation of Ukrainian troops for the escalation of the conflict in the south of the Donetsk region, Bezsonov added.
