The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) sent 1500 paratroopers and 400 Marines and special ops troops to Kyiv to carry out an anti-terrorist operation.
This was reported by Artem Shevchenko, journalist and host of TVi channel’s program “Znak oklyku!” on his Facebook page.
“My trusted source at the General Staff of Ukrainian Armed Forces reports: ‘Armed forces are moving on Kyiv: 1500 paratroopers, 400 Marines and special operations troops. They have been mobilized by order of the SBU to carry out an anti-terrorist operation. Very likely, the dispersal of protesters will take place soon. The officers are staff lieutenants and contractors. The mood is so-so. Approximately 70% of them definitely do not want to fight the people.’
“PS. The troops mentioned include the 25th Airborne Division, the 1st Marine Division, the 831st Anti-Sabotage Platoon, and the 73rd naval special operations center,” he wrote.
In addition, the journalist has published a video showing the type of bullets being shot at people. These bullets easily penetrate shields and bulletproof vests.
