President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has left for Donbas to visit the advanced positions on the line of contact.
As the press service of the Head of State notes, the main purpose of the meeting with the service members is to “boost defenders’ morale.”
Meanwhile, Poland’s Foreign Minister Zbigniew Rau is expected to pay an urgent visit to Ukraine due to the threat to peace on Ukraine’s borders.
Moreover, an increasing number of articles about the redeployment of Russian troops close to the border with Ukraine are appearing in the media. The Conflict Intelligence Team (CIT) research group published new evidence of the concentration of Russian military equipment near the border. In particular, a new large field camp of the Russian army was discovered in the Voronezh region 170 km of the border with Ukraine.
Experts say that Russia is currently carrying out the largest troop movements since the battles for Debaltseve in the winter of 2015.
According to other reports, the Russian Federation also is redeploying landing and artillery boats of the Caspian Flotilla to the Black Sea. As the Russian military explains, everything happens “as part of the control test for the winter training period.”
