Speaking of renewal of active fighting, the speaker of the National Security and Defence Council emphasized that Ukraine should be ready for this, Censor.NET reports citing LB.
"There was a lot of information of the possible terrorists' attack dates. Some significant days were mentioned, like Nov. 7 ("October revolution day - ed.), and others. We cannot say when, but we should be ready," Lysenko said.

The NSDC sees four the most probable directions for terrorists' attack: Stanytsia Luhanska, Donetsk, Debaltseve, and Mariupol.
Lysenko noted that Stanytsia Luhanska is several kilometers from the border with Russia, so this is the most obvious and easy location for Russia to support the terrorists. Donetsk, its airport in particular, is as important, because the takeoff strip would allow to quickly move new forces of the terrorists. Finally, Debaltseve is a powerful railway junction connecting the Donetsk and Luhansk regions. "These locations are fortified by our soldiers, and they hold them despite daily shelling," Lysenko announced.
"The fire at the southern direction is not as active, but we know that there are a lot of soldiers and there is intelligence there," he said. Lysenko emphasized that intelligence is not conducted for a reason, so Mariupol direction is also regarded as possible for the terrorists' attack.
Also, two Russian soldiers were detained at the Donetsk airport checkpoint Wednesday, who were heading to fight at the terrorists' side, Lysenko said. One of their tasks was to collect information and pass it on to the terrorists training center in Donetsk.

"The detained were at this Ukrainian checkpoint by mistake. They thought they are at the terrorists' checkpoint. Both Russians were passed on to the SBU," the speaker said.
