Dmitry Tymchuk: units of Russian air assault division deployed in east Ukraine

Dmitry Tymchuk: units of Russian air assault division deployed in east Ukraine

Units of the 76th Air Assault Division of the Russian Armed Forces have been deployed near the town of Stakhanov in Ukraine’s Luhansk Region, the military journalist and coordinator of the Information resistance group, Dmytro Tymchuk, reported.

Tymchuk wrote on his Facebook page on 1 October that Russian paratroopers are moving around in small groups of 10 people in special vehicles.

Meanwhile, 27 Russian tanks have been observed near the town of Debaltseve in Donetsk Oblast. Earlier this hardware was observed near Miusynsk and Vakhrusheve (both in Luhansk Oblast), Tymchuk said.

In another Facebook posting the same day, Tymchuk wrote that several Russian servicemen had gone missing in Donetsk and that separatists saw this as evidence of the presence of pro-Ukrainian guerrillas in the city.

Tymchuk also reported that fighting had broken out between various groups of militants and they had also fired on units of the Russian army near Donetsk, Dokuchayevsk and Krasnyy Luch using heavy weapons.

Tymchuk noted that the distribution of Russian passports had been stepped up in the Donetsk people’s republic, in particular among elderly people. In addition, Tymchuk reported that a consignment of chevrons for uniforms of a so-called “Kharkiv people’s republic” had been delivered to the headquarters of the self-proclaimed Luhansk people’s republic.
