"Protesters are expected to provoke clashes with patriotic activists and law enforcers. Russian media are going describe the confrontation as an aggravation of inter-ethnic conflict in southern Ukraine. The information campaign of the Kremlin-controlled media will seek to persuade the international community of the oppression of national minorities in Ukraine by the right-wing movements and the Ukrainian government, as well as a volatile security situation in our country," the message says.

The activities are also intended to affect the international image of Ukraine in the run-up to 2017 Eurovision Song Contest.
