The Ukrainian army has concentrated 63 tanks in the directions of Horlivka and Donetsk, Deputy Commander of the Corps of the Defense Ministry of the Donetsk People’s Republic Eduard Basurin said on Nov 19, with reference to the DPR’s intelligence.
“Our intelligence has detected 23 camouflaged tanks near Deyleyevka (northwest of Horlivka, 9 km far from the contact line), 19 vehicles near Zamozhnoye (south of Donetsk, 3 km far from the contact line) and 40 tanks near Novobakhmutovka. Since yesterday the Kiev fighters have fired 46 122-mm shells at the territory of the DPR,” Basurin said.
Earlier EADaily quoted the DPR Defense Ministry as saying that Kiev’s plan to allocate $4.2bn for its army next year is aimed to escalate the armed conflict in Donbass. The Kiev regime needs this war as it is a source of profit for some of its corrupt representatives.
