Donetsk, Feb 11- DAN. The materials on the Russian “offensive” against Ukraine broadly covered by western media were designed in 2017 by Kiev as a military drill legend, Donetsk People’s Republic Head Denis Pushiilin said at a press conference in Donetsk on Friday.

“You might recall the Bild’s story on how Russia must attack, how the DPR and the LPR must act, including our corps in Ukraine,” Pushilin said. “As for where it came from, the situation is much simpler [...] Ukraine designed a legend of a military exercise back in 2017 on how Russia might behave in theory and what Ukrainian units must do.”

The documents were obtained by the DPR intelligence, and today, the head of state passed the secret files to the Donetsk News Agency editorial office, he said. *jk
