Donetsk, Dec 12 – DAN. The DPR has forwarded a diplomatic note to Special Representative of the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office in Ukraine Ambassador Martin Sajdik demanding a reaction to Kiev's preparation of an assault in Donbass, said DPR Foreign Minister Natalia Nikonorova.

"Following Denis Pushilin's announcement we have prepared and forwarded a note with all the facts available to us via our intelligence. The note is for Special Representative of the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office in Ukraine and Contact Group's Coordinator Ambassador Martin Sajdik."

Earlier DPR Intelligence reported Kiev is preparing a large-scale offensive against the DPR and concentrating large force along the contact line.

Ukraine declared martial law on November 26 in ten Ukrainian regions adjacent to Russia and Transnistria, or Kiev-controlled Donbass regions, or the Black Sea and Sea of Azov.

Martial law is brought in all over the state or in designated areas in accordance with the bill "On the Legal Regime of Martial Law". Martial law provides military authorities and leadership with greater and unlimited power, while restricting civil liberties such as public gatherings, media freedoms and free movement.*ot
