‘What we can surely say is that the rotation of Russian troops on the administrative border with Crimea is almost over. The units that have been there are now redeployed and replaced by other units. We can say that these new forces use more modern weaponry; these are the airborne assault units that are capable of acting most decisively in critical conditions’, Oleg Slobodyan said at a briefing in Kyiv on Thursday, August 11.

The official added that in early September, the Russian military plans to hold large-scale drills dubbed ‘Caucasus 2016’. The preparations for the drills include, in particular, deploying more units of the Russian armed forces in Crimea.
