Donetsk, Feb 17 – DAN. Ukrainian special operations forces planned to blow up an oil depot in Elenovka, DPR People’s Militia deputy commander Eduard Basurin said on Friday.

"This night, a saboteur squad of the Vostok Special Operations Center attempted to infiltrate the DPR in the Elenovka area to blow up fuel tanks, that supposedly contained fuel. Massive catastrophic consequences have been averted thanks to the prompt reaction of law enforcement forces, who followed up a phone call made by a guard of the depot and prevented the terrorist attack," he said.

All the related data will be passed to international organizations and the Prosecutor General's Office of the DPR to launch a criminal investigation. *ot
