RESET: Ukraine on alert awaiting start of Russian army offensive.

“We’re expecting it at any time,” Lysenko said, answering a question about the possible aggravation of the conflict. Officials have noted the repositioning of equipment and the rotation of the military along the entire contact line from the enemy’s side, along with border crossings at uncontrolled sections.

“In the north of Crimea, Russian troops are also carrying out their maneuvers, and for a while the movement at checkpoints was suspended on the initiative of the Russian side. This means the occupiers are conducting their maneuvers, and we need to be aware that at any moment, at any hour, they can start a large or small-scale offensive,” Lysenko said.

Moscow’s window of opportunity likely closes on January 20, 2017.
