The secret operational plan of the radical nationalist group “Azov” (against whose members criminal cases were initiated in the Russian Federation) was discovered in Mariupol on Monday, June 6. It indicates that 70% of the population of Mariupol in the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) are pro-Russian.
“The local population is pro-Russian in 70% of cases,” the RIA Novosti agency quotes a document that refers to preparations for hostilities in Mariupol and its suburbs.
The papers were found at the base of the militants, located next to the 61st city school. The plan was given the number 1/16 and the code name “Storm”.
The discovered document is a carefully worked out mechanism of Ukraine’s military operations against the DNR.
Earlier in the day, Yan Gagin, an adviser to the head of the DPR government, said that the “Azov” could still be in Mariupol. According to him, they will be detected, and if they are found, “they will be filtered, investigated.”
