General Staff of Ukraine: Russia pulled three strike divisions close to Ukrainian border


The Russian Federation has increased its military presence near the border with Ukraine by three motorized infantry divisions.

“This is the 3rd (permanently deployed in Valuiki), the 144th (Smolensk), and the 150th (Novocherkassk) motorized infantry divisions. It is very symbolic that the Russian leadership has chosen these divisions for permanent deployment near the eastern borders of Ukraine,” said the head of the General Staff Victor Muzhenko.

In particular, the head of the General Staff noted that the staff, structure, armament, and military equipment of the listed Russian divisions show that they are intended for conducting quick offensive actions.
