Russia claims Kyiv is planning a new offensive in eastern Ukraine

“Russia’s top diplomat Sergei Lavrov accused Kyiv on Monday of planning a new offensive against rebels in Ukraine’s restive east and ‘trying to heat up tensions by making some unbelievable and crazy statements.’

‘We are worried by the developments in recent days which strongly recall preparation for more military actions,’ Reuters news agency reported Lavrov as saying, strongly placing the blame for renewed violence on the Ukrainian government. ‘It was like that in August last year when Ukrainian soldiers received the order to attack. … It was like that in January of this year. One shouldn’t be experimenting and trying one’s luck, one should simply fulfill what was agreed in Minsk.'”
