Donetsk, Nov 1 – DAN. Ukrainian radicals plan to block the pullback of forces in the Petrovskoye disengagement zone, said DPR People's Militia deputy chief-of-staff Eduard Basurin.

He said that nationalistic formations have been organizing training camps in Nikolayevka adjacent to the disengagement zone. Three buses with thugs have arrived there already.

"In case the disengagement begins, radicals plan to use these goons to block passage for troops and equipment as they expect the army will not open fire on members of the formations."

Earlier a skirmish was reported between Ukrainian service members and nationalists in the vicinity of the disengagement zone. Radicals opened fire at soldiers as they demanded that thugs give in their arms.

The disengagement in Petrovskoye is scheduled for November 4. *ot
