Foreign Ministry: Russia deploys military camps on the border

Foreign Ministry: Russia deploys military camps on the border

Thursday, March, 27, 2014, 09:41

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is concerned with the rearrangement of Russian troops on the border regions of Ukraine.

The ministry’s Director of Information Policy, Yevhen Perebyynis, reported at the briefing, according to Ukrainski Novyny. “According to our law enforcement agencies, the rearrangement of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation is ongoing in the border areas of Ukraine, especially in the Bryansk region,” he said.

The diplomat noted that there is a concentration of military equipment near the settlement of Churovichi in Klimovo District of Bryansk Oblast, which is about 18 km from the Ukrainian border. He said that on March 25, two military echelons totaling 60 cars with personnel and equipment arrived at the Klimovo railway station in Bryansk Oblast.

In addition, Perebyynis said that the deployment of communication and management was spotted. Also, platforms with modules for accommodating personnel, equipment staff, medical facilities and military field bases were identified. He stressed that Russia is actively using drones for aerial reconnaissance and monitoring the situation in the border regions.

To date, the Russian Defense Ministry has justified its troops presence near the north-eastern border of Ukraine by carrying out planned exercises lasting until April. The State Border Service reported that the number of provocations by the Russian soldiers near the border has increased.

The Ukrainian border guards estimated that just over the past day incursions by Russian unmanned aerial vehicles occurred more than 40 times near the border at different sites. In addition, 11 violations of the airspace over Crimea were observed.
