Worrying development – Large accumulation of forces
A new large accumulation of troops is observed on the Russian-Ukrainian border, as for the first time since World War II, Russia is transferring forces from Siberia to Ukraine.
Analysts note that this move, which has been taking place since 1941, signals Moscow’s intention for a generalized attack on Ukraine and involvement with NATO in Eastern Europe.
“Ladders with equipment from the Eastern Military District of the Russian Federation are heading west, probably to the Ukrainian border. “Among them are tanks of the 5th Separate Tank Brigade, known in many of the battles for Debaltseve ,” said the International Conflict Intelligence Team (CIT), which conducts independent military conflict investigations, according to information from echedoros-a. gr
The authors referred to the video with the scales of Russian military equipment published on TikTok and checked the number on one of the platforms using the “gdevagon” service, which allows one to track the location of the train cars.
Among the equipment, analysts observed trucks, tankers, tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, Grad and Uragan multi-launcher systems . In addition, in the video from Novosibirsk, they probably saw the Tor air defense system or the Shilka ZSU.
The 5th Separate Tank Brigade is based in Ulan-Ude.
On January 11, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation announced that exercises in the Western Military District had begun with the participation of 3,000 troops and 300 units of military equipment in the areas bordering Ukraine.
Western media, citing sources, have been reporting for several months that Russia is gathering troops near Ukraine and speculating in preparation for an invasion. The Russian authorities deny these allegations.
