Lieutenant-General Yuri Alleron believes that the first “landmark” in the city, which was to take opponents came to power in a coup Oleksandr Turchynov, Andrew Parubiy and Arsen Avakov, was meant to be the Lugansk, Donetsk and Slavyansk. In fact, the “liberation of Ukraine” was planned to start from Kharkiv, the largest industrial city in the post-Soviet Republic with 2 million population.
Also Alleron whose subordinates are situated directly in the area of ATO, said that the militia DND and LNR allegedly shelled the positions of government troops, disguised in the form of the APU, and then turn around and redirect the artillery fire on residential areas of Donbass cities.
According to him, this is done to maintain the tension in the civilian population of those places.
In response to the interim administration under fire “punitive” settlements they impose a curfew. This measure is not only meant to restrict people’s movement, it is still affected, according to the General, in their subconscious. After 22 hours the locals are afraid to leave their homes. They can “legally” send “in the basement”, in the MGB, and even “severely hurt” on the spot.
