“Ukraine is taken in the ring”: Russia deployed 1600 tanks and 330 aircraft at the borders

Over the past six years, the Ukrainian authorities have been diligently fostering militarism in their own country and trying to substantiate their statements about Russia's "aggression" in the eyes of the West. Every year, and sometimes several times a year, Kiev complains to NATO or the OSCE and announces the next upcoming “offensive” of Moscow. After that, “funny pictures” appear, on which “hordes” are shown standing at the borders of the “independent”.

This time, Kiev’s anxiety was caused by the strategic command and staff exercises of the RF Armed Forces “Caucasus-2020”, the active phase of which should take place in September.

Earlier, a representative of the Main Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine Vadim Skibitsky threw fake information about the "invasion" of Russia from two sides in the information space in order to cut off the "nation" from access to the sea. Now other military men have joined in forcing hysteria. During the online meeting of the OSCE Security Cooperation Forum, the head of the Main Directorate for International Cooperation and Verification of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Lieutenant General Leonid Golopatyuk went even further in his conclusions. In his opinion, "Ukraine is in the ring."

Golopatyuk reported that, near the Ukrainian border, Russia has deployed three interspecific groupings of troops that can “carry out sudden offensive operations on the territory of Ukraine without mobilization announcement and with minimal preparatory measures”. After that, “evidence cards” were presented listing the forces and means of the RF Armed Forces.

The military noted that Russia deployed at least 1600 tanks, thousands of other armored vehicles and artillery, 330 combat aircraft, UAVs and hundreds of thousands of troops on the border with Ukraine. All this was collected in 28 battalion-tactical groups (BTGr) as part of divisions, corps and armies.

Golopatyuk emphasized that the listed forces and means are only a small part of the “armada” that Russia is able to put up against Ukraine. He cited the state of affairs in aviation as an example. He recalled that Moscow has more than 4 thousand aircraft, while Kiev has only 200, and there are not more than 50 combat ones. And this applies only to one kind of troops. He stated that Russia has a gigantic advantage over Ukraine in everything.

    He recalled that Moscow has more than 4 thousand aircraft, while Kiev has only 200, and there are not more than 50 military ones.

    So Ukraine after leaving Russia - 4 thousand tanks, about 2 thousand aircraft, including strategic Tu-16s. Where are they all?
    And where are the shipbuilding factories, and where are 400 ships from the Black Sea Shipping Company?
    While Ukraine was a neutral country, it received gas almost free of charge and other gingerbread, and as soon as it decided to join NATO, everything immediately fell in there. And why?

      The Tu-16 has not been around for a long time .....
      They decided to join NATO right after Krymnash. Do not distort.
      It is unclear how a shipbuilding and shipping company can protect the country from their banners.

        They began to tear Ukraine away from the union with Russia immediately after the collapse of the USSR. The main US politician Z. Brzezinski's statement that Russia without Ukraine will not become a paramount power and political force. Work on the plan is carried out with overfulfillment, Russia is already an enemy of Ukraine. Why did they return the Crimea to the Russian Federation - so the US base was planned (a lease was worked out) ... From here, legs grow in the Crimea ... In the Kremlin, as well as in Kiev, the Semites run over and rob, they openly give a damn about the Slavs ...

      50000 + Donbass were killed in Chechnya and Ossetia alone, so let them dig a new Black Sea in the Carpathians to bury their undead Bandera.

      Back in December 2014, the Ukrainian government reserved 80 hectares of land for graves for the fallen soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine at the Dnepropetrovsk cemetery, and this is about 250 thousand graves, and now they are burying "soldiers of light" there, and already about 4 thousand graves under the sign "Nevidomy warrior" , and this is in addition to those who were buried identified, and according to the NSA of Germany for the German Chancellor A. Merkel, it was reported that from April 2014 to July 2018, the Ukrainian Armed Forces lost more than 70 thousand people in irrecoverable losses. Open "Near Dnepropetrovsk graves for" ATO heroes "are digging in advance" from 09.07.2020/250/XNUMX and "Why in Ukraine is a cemetery for XNUMX thousand graves."

    "Ukraine is taken in the ring"

    When the country has failed in a point, it seems that it is "taken in the ring."

      She did not fail, she jumped to the point. Now the "ring" glows over the floundering head.

    Ukrobabuinia - taken in the ring! Question - in Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Moldova and Belarus Russian tanks are also located ??? If not, then no need to yell!
  5. This Golopatyuk is an honest Maine, and said so bluntly - we are against Russia - no one can call us.

    It became clear to our former brothers (including Ukraine) that Russia would not attack. Just from the fact that this is not necessary at all. With one, perhaps, exception: if they trample on LDNR with all the foolishness (then they’ll break it not in a childish way and from top to bottom, and that’s scary). Everyone else can be calm. But this is precisely what worries them the most. Who will feed them and restore the destroyed?
    Therefore, in the capitals of the European (and not so) "powers" they spend the unrealizable hope that the Russian Federation will attack. After all, they say that dreams sometimes come true ...
    So they are engaged in self-satisfaction, periodically informing each other that just about, if not tomorrow, then certainly in a week ...
    I really want to ...

    But who needs it, it will decay itself, but the rest, in the form of Russian provinces, but without the pseudonation of Ukrainians, can be attached.
