According to him, Ukrainian military positions were attacked with large-caliber artillery and mortars, mostly located in the residential districts of occupied cities in Donbas. Turchynov said that Russia has once again used civilians as human shields to cover its war crimes, a tactic often used in Crimea and Donbas. "Everyday, military provocations and crimes in the east of our country show that the withdrawal of tanks and weaponry of less than 100 mm [in caliber] is the attempt of the enemy to create favourable conditions for Russian terrorist groups to attack, " Turchynov said. The official added that Russia's actions were evidence of Moscow's sabotage of the Minsk agreements on ceasefire. According to Turchynov, commanders of the Ukrainian Armed Forces are analyzing possible directions of attacks and are preparing countermeasures.
