Ukraine under threat of full-scale war

Russian-backed separatist forces to allegedly undergo rotation and heavy weapons supply 

The situation on the Ukrainian eastern frontline may worsen harshly. According to Ukraine's Intelligence Service, the leaders of Russian-backed separatist forces ordered each and every militant, including those being off, to return to the battlefield. Along with the armed forces they drag heavy weapon closer to the position of Ukrainian soldiers. National Guard fighters say they are being shelled every night, as well as the houses of the local residents.

The village of Krasnohorivka lying to the west of Donetsk is considered one of the hottest points. The distance between the positions of Ukrainian army and the terrorists is less than 1 kilometre. Both sides do not spend a single hour without being shelled and rescuing from heavy mortars.

Ukrainian officers claim Russian-backed separatists might have undergone the regular rotation, for since recent they have started shooting with big-caliber bullets. Ukrainians do not remember the enemy had such kind of weapon before the recent so called updates.

After one more night spent under heavy shelling Ukrainian soldiers say the enemy has already forgotten about Minsk agreements. Ukraine may soon encounter a real war.
