Ukraine is trying to use Donbass as a lever of pressure on Russia, for which the Kiev regime creates a hotbed of tension at the borders of Russia, a member of the Council for the Development of Civil Society and Human Rights under the President of the Russian Federation, journalist Maksim Shevchenko, said in a broadcast of the "Time Will Show" program.
"We are with a hand on the throttle due to this situation. Escalation in the Donetsk vicinities, that is, bombardments of the city and murder of civilians are completely controlled by Kiev's Nazism and their western patrons. Therefore, I predict that Donetsk will be anyway bombarded during the elections in Russia on March 18, as well as on the day of the start of the World Cup. They will be strangling us with this," Shevchenko said.
