Kremlin-sponsored mercenaries in Donbas have been keeping some of their military vehicles in the vicinities of Luhansk; the large amount of those was observed in the city’s outskirts. The Special Monitoring Mission of the OSCE in Ukraine mentioned that in their report on Wednesday, April 26.

‘At the Luhansk aerodrome, the SMM saw 12 APCs (five MTLB and seven BTR–80), seven IFVs (BMP-2), 15 trucks and five vehicles for towing howitzers, all stationary. There were also over 500 armed men wearing military-style clothing. The SMM again saw one tank (T-64) with a front-mounted mine sweeper near “DPR”-controlled Nikishyne (60km north-east of Donetsk) and continued to observe seven multiple-launch rocket systems (BM-21 Grad, 122mm), seven self-propelled howitzers (2S1 Gvozdika, 122mm), ten towed howitzers (five D-30 Lyagushka, 122mm; and five 2A65 Msta-B, 152mm), and seven tanks (T-72) at an aerodrome in the south-eastern outskirts of Luhansk city’, the report reads.
