Significant changes in the structure of the Russian troops are observed near the border of Ukraine. Vadym Skybytsky, the representative of Chief Intelligence Department of Ukraine’s Defense Minister reported that.
He noted that since December 1, 2018, the military detachments of the Russian troops, placed near the state border were put on high alert. Skybytsky emphasized that all of them can carry out the tasks, including those on the territory of Ukraine.
He also reported that the air component of the Armed Forces of Russia increased at the Ukrainian direction, too. Particularly, the military airfields are built up and modernized, with detachments that previously participated in the combat actions in Syria deployed on them.
Earlier, Viktor Muzhenko, the Head of the General Staff of Ukraine’s Armed Forces said that the amount of the Russian military equipment along the Ukrainian border dramatically increased.
Later, he added that it was the biggest military threat since the annexation of Crimea in 2014.
