Russia has intensified the process of bringing personnel, weapons and military equipment into the territory of Donbas to reinforce Russian-terrorist troops, Dmytro Tymchuk, head of the Centre for Military and Political Studies, says on Facebook.
“In particular, on the evening of October 21, a column of military vehicles and up to 500 people in Russian military uniforms without any insignia arrived in Amvrosiyivka from Russia. The column included vehicles, some 50 tanks and armored personnel carriers. A part of the column remained in this settlement, another part (about 300 people and 30 vehicles) headed in the direction of Komsomolske,” he said.
Mr Tymchuk also noted that Russian-terrorist forces operating in Volnovakha district were receiving personnel and hardware (mainly artillery).
There has been a sharp increase in the number of tank crews consisting of militants from Donbass, who were previously trained in camps near Rostov-on-Don (Russia), he added.
Meanwhile, a video showing a column of military vehicles has appeared on the Internet. It was filmed in the Russian town of Belgorod, not far from the border with Ukraine. “A column of Russian vehicles id heading to the East,” its author said.
