Kelin: Kiev's buildup of forces in the Donbas indicates a forthcoming offensive

The increase in the number of Ukrainian military units on the dividing line with the militia suggests that Kiev is preparing an offensive, Russian permanent envoy to the OSCE Andrei Kelin told RT. Reports about it RIA News.

Kelin: Kiev's buildup of forces in the Donbas indicates a forthcoming offensive

“On the other side of the dividing line, concentration and movement of troops is constantly taking place, which makes it suspicious that a lightning large-scale offensive is being prepared from the Ukrainian side,” said Kelin.

According to him, the column of obsolete unmarked equipment recently observed by OSCE observers belongs to the militia. They instantly recognized this, explaining that their equipment was changing positions.

“I would say that this sounds plausible, because we are well aware that the Ukrainian military are currently increasing their presence,” the permanent representative said.

Previously, he raised the question to the leadership of the Organization about how objective is its approach to assessing the situation in the Donbas. In its reports, the OSCE mentions only the maneuvers of the militias, and the movement of the Ukrainian troops passes over in silence.

      Ukrov still has no other choice! They have the option to either freeze in the trenches or go on the offensive, the choice is not particularly great. Moreover, "Uncle Sam" will not let you relax. So in the near future we will observe "Illovaisk 2", and most likely "3" and "4". Only now, in addition to Illovaiski, there will also be Mariupol and Slavyansk with Kramatorsk, and even with Kharkov to boot! We wish good luck to the militia in their holy cause, death to the ukrofascists!

        ... the choice is not particularly great.
        Right in - there is no choice.
        There are 2 options
        1- run- freeze in Kiev
        2- do not run - freeze here
        ___ +
        TOTAL: we have a total of 2 to freeze

          Poroshenko himself blabbed, and more than once. What is an example for solving the Donbas problem - actions of Croatia against Serbian Krajin .
          They are preparing for this. The ideal option is the remainder of the territory without a population.

          I think subversive work in the interests of dill begins with Russia itself - information and sabotage. In the Donbass in general wildness. They need a unified military dictatorship. This is a classic - according to V.I. Lenin

      Those who are not responsible for anything are eager to fight, the sane military explain that after Putin's words: "We will not allow the destruction of the Donbass militias" is suicide, and politicians are simply afraid. But out of fear they can do a lot of things.

      I think it will be cooler now, Kiev needs fuel for the winter and no coal is going to sell all the coal in the Donbass to Kiev so it will be a decisive battle and maybe the last one !!!!

    The most moronic in this whole story is that THEY are already late with the offensive. After all, the militias did not doze off either. It would be necessary to step in at the time of the referendum or immediately after it. And now and then they will receive the full program.

      they could not advance earlier - the equipment was largely incapacitated, which means that it would be necessary to advance, risking their skins with a terrible supply, i.e. the offensive would end immediately after the start - within a few hours.

      Well, the fact that "something will happen" here and go to the grandmother is not necessary here, perhaps rather WHAT WILL BE ?! IMHA is the best option if the Armed Forces of Ukraine are turned to Kiev to beat the fascists and then begin to discuss and equip the federation.

    Probably just waiting for this. The army of New Russia is ready for this, why do you think in response to the shelling of peaceful neighborhoods the army of New Russia does not advance? Yes, if they go on the offensive, then they will be attacked by all and sundry. This is not necessary. Kiev will move troops and then the history of Ukraine will end. Only in this order can events develop. Young republics need to consider political chess and calculate moves forward.

    I think this is a tactical move of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, now it is very risky to carry out an offensive, all the more rapid and unexpected, now they are trying to "stretch" the ammunition forces of the militia and destroy, as happened with "Zorya" and, most importantly, to increase shelling, sabotage and everything that will or has already been created for a peaceful life, a struggle for exhaustion, unless, of course, there are changes in the political situation, the people themselves in other regions are not ready and do not want to take one side or the other

    Yes, indeed, the accumulation of APUs in the conditions of the onset of cold weather should probably mean preparation for an offensive, otherwise why drive troops to unprepared for winter positions. Well, I think that the fighters of the DNI and LC will meet them with dignity, from all the trunks. Novorossia has been talking about this offensive for a long time, and is preparing for defense. This is the last blow of the Kiev junta. The Nazis gathered the last reserves into battle, repaired and restored everything that can drive and shoot. The end to the Nazis is near.

    Most likely it will be so, it is impossible for Kiev to leave the army in the trenches for the winter, fraught with consequences, so they will try to solve the problem before the onset of real cold weather.
    Well ... let's see.

    Yes, I think it will begin soon. God forbid the DNI and LC to withstand. At first it will be hard, fact. The parasion probably pulled all combat-ready there. But if the first onslaught withstand the junta.

      It seems to me that after Putin said Merkel that he would not give up Novorossia to be devoured, but after a "warm welcome" in Australia and leaving there, one thing remains: openly support Novorossia with all our might. It's just that if you don't do this now, then you can return to the 90s, when our president was cutting off the aircraft landing gear and conducting a German orchestra ... Russia does not need to return to those days at any level ...

    Now they are pulling together for about 2-3 months !!! Novorussia is waiting for the sea weather!

    NOVOROSSIA A long time ago could recapture all positions since now there is something to go on the attack with and with what sense .....

    It's already just making money, (PURE MY OPINION). On both sides .......

    Or are they waiting for a special order?

    US may provide military assistance to Ukraine
    20.11.2014, 10: 34 | "Newspaper.Ru"
    Deputy Presidential Advisor on National Security, Tony Blinken, said the United States could provide military assistance to Ukraine. It is reported by Reuters.
    At a congressional hearing, he clarified that the Barack Obama administration is considering options for revising the policy of refusing military assistance to Kiev.
    According to Blinken, strengthening the fighting efficiency of the Ukrainian troops through the supply of weapons could influence Russia to abandon further actions, which, he noted, flagrantly violate the Minsk agreements.

    We decided to throw firewood in the furnace. The war to exterminate the people who inhabit Ukraine.
    Donetsk has long been time to evacuate to Russia and untie the hands of the militias.
