Ukraine is currently forming shock troops on the border with Crimea, right near the Crimean isthmus.
“I receive confirmation from all districts of the Kherson region and surrounding regions, according to which the Ukrainian Armed Forces are concentrating heavy military equipment, including self-propelled artillery platforms, main battle tanks, BM-21 Grads and infantry combat vehicles, on the border with Crimea. The concentration is occurring right near the Crimean isthmus. Provision, as well as ammunition and manpower are being delivered in this direction,” Zhuravko said and published related photos.
According to him, “today’s authorities are preparing a serious provocation on the border with the territory of Crimea.”
“The ‘main knuckle’ is being formed in the area of the Crimean isthmus,” Zhuravko added.
“This means that the epicenter of the provocation will take place on the territory of Ukraine. I also have evidences that radical groups, such as the Right Sector, the Azov, the Asker, the Wolves, and other mercenaries are concentrating near the ‘main knuckle’,” the politician stressed.
Meanwhile, Russia has started large-scale exercises in the Southern Military District, which includes the regions bordering with Ukraine: Crimea and the Rostov Region. As the Polit Navigator information website reports, over 2,500 soldiers and 350 units of military and special equipment will take part in the exercises, which will last until August 20.
