A factory in the so-called “Luhansk People’s Republic” (LNR) is sewing uniforms imitating those of the Armed Services of Ukraine to be used by the Russian and terrorist forces in provocations in eastern Ukraine, the ATO (Anti-Terrorist Operation) press center reported Monday night, August 10.

The terrorists intend to stage these provocations in eastern Ukraine in order to accuse Ukrainian military of escalating the conflict. The fake uniforms are being sewn in a factory in Sverdlovsk, a city in the Luhansk Oblast that is outside of Kyiv’s control, ATO reported.

“According to our current data, the enemy is actively preparing for provocations, trying by all means to accuse the Armed Forces of Ukraine of escalating the conflict,” the ATO press release stated. “Thus, a sewing factory in Sverdlovsk, in the Luhansk Oblast, is sewing 200 sets of military uniforms copied after the Ukrainian ones — with chevrons and patches. The fact that (the terrorists) have repeatedly terrorized the local population while wearing Ukrainian uniforms suggests that they will resort to such tactics again,” the ATO statement concluded.

Earlier on Monday, NSDC Secretary Oleksandr Turchynov said that, according to available information, Russian intelligence services are preparing provocations on the occupied territories in eastern Ukraine that are designed to result in high numbers of victims. “This bloody crime is being organized under the guise of attacks by the Ukrainian Armed Forces in response to numerous provocations.” he said.
