Russian Military Units Reinforced On Southeast Ukraine Frontier

The Kiev newspaper Delo reports Russian military assets concentrating along the southeast Ukrainian frontier, from the Sea of Azov to north of Lugansk.  The reports come from a source called “Informational Resistance” (Informatsionnoe soprotivlenie), affiliated with the “Institute for Military and War Research” in Kiev.  I couldn’t come up with more information on these groups.  Dmitrii Timchuk, head of “Informational Resistance”, has a FB page.  So I can’t vouch for the reliability of these reports, which claim that forty Russian military helicopters have flown into Millerovo (opposite Lugansk region), that troops in the region of Tarasova are moving towards the frontier, and that more troops are concentrating in various regions of Rostov province, including Taganrog.


These obviously could be routine movements or prophylactic measures.  Hard to say whether they suggest a Russian military move into east Ukraine.
