According to RIA Novosti, citing data from the Russian Defense Ministry, a secret order to prepare a military operation in the Donbass was signed on January 22 by the commander of the National Guard of Ukraine, Colonel General Nikolay Balan.

According to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, secret documents of the Ukrainian army came into the possession of the department during the Russian military special operation in Ukraine.

The document is addressed to the heads of the northern Kiev, southern Odessa and western territorial departments of the National Guard of Ukraine”, - TASS quotes the words of the official representative of the Russian Defense Ministry, Igor Konashenkov.

According to Konashenkov, the secret order contains the original signatures of the officials of the command of the National Guard of Ukraine responsible for carrying out the tasks.
