According to the intelligence of the DPR, foreign snipers appeared in the Ukrainian army, identified as Arabic speakers. Such information was relayed to international press today at a briefing was voiced by the official representative of the operational command of the DPR, Eduard Basurin.
FRN has come to learn that there are already a number of Salafist ‘Islamic’ brigades, operating on the side of the Ukrainian forces. However, these would not be Arab speakers, but are Chechens of the Dzhokhar Dudayev battalion, and the Shah Mansur battalion, and they have been reported defending the front line near Mariupol in 2015.
Sources close to FRN have informed us that most of this latest group of 50 snipers are likely ‘PMC’, financed by the Saudis with logistical support and agreements brokered by Israel. This is a dangerous sign, and shows that the usual suspects are lining up their pieces once again to challenge the independent break-away republics of the Donbass, the LPR and DPR.
In today’s official press release to international journalists, Basurin explained:
“We have received data on the arrival of a group of 50 armed people in the zone held down by the 36th Brigade, in the vicinity of the settlement of Berdyansk. They were equipped, as they say, with the latest technology. Baggage is specific for militants and based on that we know about their specialization – they are snipers.”
According to the representative of the defense ministry, this could lead to an increase in the number of incidents of sniper fire on DPR positions and peaceful quarters near Mariupol, in the areas under the control of the 36th and 128th Brigade of the Armed Forces.
This development occurs as the Ukrainian military is attempting to build up its force enough to attack DPR positions. Normally, this is coordinated with other conflicts, so that Russian and Axis of Resistance media and military operations are over-stretched. This strategy was witnessed consistently over the last 4 years. Therefore, any increase in activity against the ceasefire in Ukraine, may run concurrent with Islamicist activity in Syria.
At the same time, the conflict in Syria has gone considerably in favor of the Syrian government, and the Atlanticist forces internationally are in a much worse position militarily, in terms of force projection and coordinated attacks, than they were in 2011, at their zenith.
