"According to the intelligence, the leaders of the illegal armed groups are preparing a massive bloody provocation. In particular, the militants are going to commit an attack on the peaceful rally in Donetsk during celebration of the Victory Day on May 9. The enemy intends to accuse the ATO forces in advance of committing this terrorist attack," he said.

According to Lysenko, this crime will trigger major offensive on the Ukrainian troops' positions at three fronts: near Shyrokyne, Pisky, and Stanytsia Luhanska villages.

Earlier, the ATO headquarters reported that the militants began lifting minefields in the Luhansk region to clear the way for the military advance.
