Also, the border guards spotted a hostile UAV flying towards Mayorske checkpoint. A POM-2 landmine was planted close to the checkpoint. The mine was successfully detected, isolated and defused.

There are no combat losses among Ukrainian defenders.

As we reported earlier, Russia moved 15,000-25,000 troops to Crimea. In total, Russia has about 31,500 servicemen in Crimea. This was stated by the representative of the US mission to the OSCE Courtney Austrian.

According to Austrian, Russia has more troops stationed on the Ukrainian border now than at any time since 2014. 

"Russia has moved 15,000-25,000 troops to Crimea or closer to the Ukrainian borders. This number includes infantry, tank battalions, helicopters, and air defense assets. These forces add to Russia’s already significantly increased combat capabilities in Crimea and along its internationally recognized border with Ukraine.  In Crimea, we assess Russia has an estimated 31,500 troops and has deployed advanced air defense systems, such as the S-400, fighter aircraft, and coastal defense cruise missiles," she said.
