Militias do not believe Poroshenko declared truce
According to the commander-in-chief of the armed forces of Donbass, Igor Strelkov, the Ukrainian security forces are using the ceasefire announced by the Ukrainian president to prepare a massive offensive against the DPR and LPR. Also, as noted Lifenews, immediately after Poroshenko's statement, Semyonovka and Kramatorsk were fired upon.
“According to my information, whole columns of Ukrainian troops are moving from Berdyansk to Mariupol and from there to the north. They are going to reach their starting positions to cut off the Luhansk and Donetsk regions from the natural channels of assistance - from supplying us with food, combustible materials, equipment and weapons, ”said Strelkov.
RIA "News"Notes that on Wednesday the head of the Luhansk People's Republic Valery Bolotov spoke to the journalists, who called the conditions of the ceasefire proposed by Petro Poroshenko as ridiculous.
“Poroshenko said that the ceasefire would be to give us the opportunity to lay down our arms,” he said. "Well, that's funny, honestly."
Poroshenko's statement on a short-term ceasefire was also commented on by the chairman of the DPR Supreme Council Denis Pushilin.
“They need to report, declare something and create an image of stormy activity. Some documents have been signed and some decisions have been taken, what has been done in this case? - he said. - We are offered to lay down arms during the period when their troops cease fire. What will happen? They will capture us unarmed and send us to concentration camps. "
According to him, the militias "are not going to surrender to the punishers," they "have already taken up arms and not to bend over, not to hide their eyes from their children later."
