The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine developed documents on the beginning of the Joint Forces Operation in Donbas instead of an anti-terrorist operation.
The beginning of the operation of the Joint Forces in the Donbas will be sanctioned by the decree of the President of Ukraine. Already a candidate for the post of head of the operation is ready. About this at a briefing today, said Yuriy Bobrov, a representative of the Department of Legal Support of the General Staff.
"The operation of the Joint Forces begins with the introduction of an appropriate presidential decree - the Supreme Commander-in-Chief about the beginning of the operation," he said, adding that such a decree could be signed in the near future.
At the same time, the Defense Ministry said that the ATO in Donbas can be conducted simultaneously with the operation of the Joint Forces.
