The separatist news source Dan-Info did not report these casualties, although it reported that Ukrainian forces fired along the Shirokino-Sakhanka line with 82-mm and 120-mm mortars.
Along the Ukrainian border, we can observe active attempts to deploy additional military units, and in quantity they are comparable to what was in 2014, when the State Duma made the decision to introduce troops; therefore it is a serious threat. New divisions, which they are deploying on our border is not only a demonstration of force, it’s very expensive. They may be used for conducting active combat. We must understand that and be prepared for that.
