As reported by Censor.NET, leader of InforResist group, MP Dmytro Tymchuk announced on Facebook.
"The 'Ministry of State Defense' of the 'Luhansk People's Republic' is spreading fake information among the residents of Kadiivka (former Stakhanov) and Alchevsk of impending massive shelling by Ukrainian army's "long-range artillery" that has been allegedly deployed in the vicinity of Krymske and Sokilnyky," he wrote.
According to Tymchuk, some "sources" say "new American SPGs" of large caliber will be used.
"According to terrorists, Kyiv decided to "completely destroy" these settlements, while no reason for that is specified. Given this information, militants are likely to launch armed provocations against the civilian population under the guise of the Ukrainian military," Tymchuk said.
Earlier, Tymchuk reported that militants were killing their own deserters, shifting the blame on Ukrainian troops.
