National Security and Defense Council: Ukrainian intelligence uncovers militant plot of brutal provocation on Victory Day

Kyiv, May 5, 2015. Ukrainian intelligence reports that pro-Russian militants are preparing a large-scale provocation. During the Victory Day on May 9, the “DPR” fighters intend to open fire at peaceful demonstrators in Donetsk. The provocation may be used as a pretext for a massive offensive on the Ukrainian military outposts in the areas of Shyrokyne, Pisky and Stanytsia Luhanska.
