The terrorist Aleksandr Zakharchenko will lose the status of leader of the so-called "DPR" if pro-Russian militants lose control of Yasynuvata beachhead, Directorate General of Intelligence of the Defense Ministry of Ukraine informs on Facebook.
Intelligence reports, that the talks between Russian curators and the leader of militants took place on February 3 in the occupied town Khartsyzk.
“The representative of the Russian Federation in the form of an ultimatum warned the leadership of so-called "DPR" that in case of loss of the Yasynuvata beachhead they will be removed from their positions.”
Earlier QHA reported that January 29 pro-Russian militants attempted to storm the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the area of Avdiivka Donetsk region. Ukrainian fighters repulsed the invaders, forcing them to retreat. After the collision, the terrorists have resumed mortar attacks on Avdiivka. The Prosecutor's office has qualified the shelling as a terrorist act as pro-Russian militants fired Avdiivka residential areas, being aware of the fact that civilian population was there.
