On Tuesday evening, a group of pro-Kremlin fighters attacked an outpost of Ukrainian troops near Avdiivka, Donetsk region. Former Head of Ukraine’s foreign intelligence, Gen. Mykola Malomuzh said that Putin needs such provocative scenarios to keep the conflict active. Thus, he can urge Merkel, Hollande and Poroshenko to negotiate and persuade them to officially recognize self-proclaimed DPR and LPR, offer amnesty for the militants and pass the law on elections on the occupied territories, which are to be held under control of pro-Russia fighters.
