Invasion of Ukraine enters new phase: Russia sends barrier troops, militants pull in weapons

The latest news from the ATO area report normalization of the situation in the zone of anti-military operation, but at the same time, militants are pulling in their military equipment to the front line. Russia's invasion of Ukraine has entered the next level.

The latest news from the ATO zone report reduction of attacks on the ATO forces with heavy weapons, but militants continue to regroup and continuously pull in large amounts of heavy equipment to the front line. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has entered the next level. This was reported by Zorian Shkiryak,  the Advisor to the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, on his Facebook, Joinfo.ua reports.

“The Russian occupation army continues to pull in tanks, armored personnel carriers, self-propelled guns, howitzers and artillery systems of various modifications and calibers, as well as multiple rocket launchers to the front line. Across the front line from north to south the aggressor has deployed about 20 Strela-10M surface-to-air missile systems. Russia-supported soldiers are constantly strengthening their fortifications and building new ones. Deliveries of weapons, heavy equipment and ammunition from Russia have not ceased. Complement of the DPR-LPR terrorist gangs with the military of the Armed Forces of Russia continues.

Now they make the lion’s share of the militants. The management of illegal armed groups of the terrorists is now completely under control and command of the staff officers of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces.

In addition,  subdivisions of internal military forces of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation, in particular, the Dzerzhinsky Division, came to the territories of temporarily occupied regions of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions. The Kremlin gave them the role of “berrier troops of the People’s Commissariat for Internal Affairs” in the event of attacks and attempted terrorist breakthrough to the positions of ATO forces forces deep into our territory to contain the retreat of militants and soldiers of the Russian army. After their appearance in the composition of the Russian-terrorist troops, the number of deserters has increased significantly among the militants, they run away in fear of being killed by the Russian Interior Troops.

In general, the situation is now relatively calm, but the aggressor can resume active operations any moment.

ATO forces are in full combat readiness. Divisions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the National Guard and the Ministry of Interior Affairs firmly hold all the positions and instantly give fitting rebuff to the Russian terrorists in the case of repeated attacks. The war with Russia continues,” Shkiryak said.
