Representative of the occupation authorities of CADO has announced a series of terrorist attacks on the critical infrastructure facilities in the uncontrolled territory of the Donetsk oblast. He told about possible explosions at gas pipelines and chemical production in the so-called "emergency statement".
According to the militant, "under the guise of servicemen of the People's Militia of the DNR and special operations forces of the armed forces of the Russian Federation", saboteurs will carry out terrorist attacks at transformer substations, water and gas pipelines and power lines, as well as "at industrial facilities with dangerous chemical production".
Allegedly, "critical infrastructure facilities in Donetsk, Horlivka, Yasynuvata, Dokuchaievsk and other settlements located in close proximity to the line of contact will fall under the attack".
According to Basurin, in fact, these actions will be carried out by special forces of the AFU. They will film their terrorist attacks "with subsequent presentation as evidence in international organizations", passing them off as sabotage by Russian special operations forces.
"The main goals of these provocations are to accuse the Russian Federation of creating pretexts for unleashing aggression against Ukraine...", - he stated.
At the same time, the militant did not specify how the Ukrainian side would explain the presence of an array of video recordings of terrorist attacks secretly carried out in the occupied territory of the Donbas by people "under the guise of servicemen of the People's Militia of the DNR and special operations forces of the armed forces of the Russian Federation".
"Having believed" on Basurin's bare word, Russian propaganda actively began to spread the version he presented. "The scenario is not so intricate. Dressed in the DNR PM pixel, the bad guys will blow up infrastructure facilities (according to the memorandum - a war crime), and will declare: "It is them, as if it were us, - to blow up the facilities ourselves to blame the AFU", - the absurdity of the "scenario" didn't embarrass Kremlin journalist-Ukrainophobe Alexander Sladkov. Leader of the "DNR" Denis Pushilin also repeated this fake on the air of one of the Russian TV channels.
As previously reported, citing an unnamed American official, CNN TV channel reported that Russia had trained a group of operatives to conduct a "false colors" operation in the occupied Donbas. According to the source, the Russian military is going to launch a dummy operation in a matter of weeks before the invasion of Ukraine.
