Increased heavy weapon supply close to the line of contact and more frequent drone flights over east Ukraine hot flashpoints are aimed to increase military aggression in Donbas, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov informed, reports ‘Interfax-Ukraine’.

According to Turchynov, Russian occupation troops have considerably increased the number and intensity of shelling against Ukraine’s Armed Forces: ‘The responsibility for the military provocations must be placed on political and military authorities of the Russian Federation, which constantly sabotage peaceful settlement of the conflict’.

He pointed out, that increase of weapon supply and more frequent drone flights over Donbas prove the assumption, that Russia is ready to increase military aggression in the area: ‘Moreover, a more frequent use of drones by Russia has been reported over the past month’.
