I think they are trying to catch at least something, they try to provoke us. They want us to come in Shirokino, and then there commit terrorist acts to undermine our units, including, then accusing us that we break the negotiations, which we first entered. This is the tactics of the fighting: «the stab in the back», — said Poltorak.

He once again stressed that the Ukrainian army will fulfill Minsk agreement.
