Russia may be once again preparing the introduction of its troops on the territory of Ukraine under the guise of peacekeeping forces.
The following gives evidence to this:
- Statements of the terrorist leaders (Bolotov, Girkin) that they need to hold out by any means until Wednesday, 23 July;
- Building numbers of Russian troops near the eastern borders of Ukraine;
- Frequent instances of reconnaissance airplane and helicopter flights of the armed forces of the Russian Federation in Ukrainian airspace;
- Russian Army preparing for pseudo-peacekeeping actions: Russian military equipment has been seen with the appropriate Russian MS peacekeeping markings, military equipment is being repainted, peacekeeping forces insignia – blue helmets, band dressings and more – are being distributed to personnel.
