On August 31, 2014 at 23:32 in “***Mariupol***” Zello channel a very strange message was overheard. The message was voiced by a robot from GruBat1 account. The message sounds like an action plan of the Russian troops for the next few days. Some of the actions announced in the plan are already being implemented. Similar messages were announced on several other Zello channels. We cannot rule out a possibility that this could be an element of psychological warfare by the Russians, but this could also be a warning about their plans. This warning could be spread by a person who knows the details of the plan but does not agree with the actions of aggressors. At any rate, we cannot ignore this message. Analyze it. Forewarned is forearmed.
The message is available here: http://www.mediafire.com/listen/aybkgv0pm3z9rxd/PlanVtorgnennya2.mp3
