Field camp of the RF Armed Forces, deployed near the Ukrainian border, shown from space

On April 8, 2021, the next satellite images of Maxar Technologies concerning Russia appeared on the Web. Previously studied surfacing in the middle of the Arctic "flocks" of Russian nuclear submarines. This time, a field camp of the Russian Armed Forces deployed in the Voronezh region near the Ukrainian border was documented from space.

It is assumed that the photographs show the Pogonovo combined-arms training ground, located in the southern suburb of Voronezh, approximately 200 km from the border with Ukraine. There is also information about the presence of the Russian military near the city of Ostrogozhsk, Voronezh region (about 150 km from the border with Ukraine).

Analysts note that Moscow continues to pull troops to the Ukrainian-Russian border, intimidating Kiev. It is specified that such activity has not been observed since 2014-2015. The Voronezh region of the Russian Federation in its southern part borders on the northern part of the Luhansk region of Ukraine, which is under the control of Kiev. The Russian region is part of the Western Military District (ZVO), formed in 2010.

On the same day, Deputy Head of the Presidential Administration of Russia Dmitry Kozak said at a press conference that if Kiev launches hostilities in the Donbass, "this could be the beginning of the end of Ukraine."

It all depends on the scale of the fire. If, as our president says (Vladimir Putin - ed.), Srebrenica is arranged there, apparently, we will have to defend

- explained the functionary.

According to him, there is no need for protection yet, since the battle-hardened Donbass militia is able to hold the front line. But here everything will depend on the military efforts undertaken by Kiev.

    - if Zakharchenko was alive, I would have decided that he wrote the article.

      Let it not be Zakharchenko who wrote, but the essence and the final result do not change from this :)

    At one time I put GoogleMaps, played around.
    I looked at the house, the garage in the State Construction Company, the shell, the house of my son in N. Riga, the summer cottage. All shots on a clear day, early in the morning - fine!
    And what's that? Not stuck ... sad

    200 km from the border - is it close? Well, on the scale of our country, if you look at the globe, then close up, of course.
    And if we compare it with Europe, it’s through two countries, in the third.

    How much does it cost in dollars? As you know, the arms race was one of the factors that killed the USSR.
    Will RF pull this race?
    The secret of Germany's wealth is that it has fewer tanks than the DPR. Although they are and the DPR these tanks.
    Build a house and burn it down, build a tank and maintain it until it degrades. Where is a third of money smarter?
    Or an excavator. And cheaper than a tank and every day digs and brings USEFUL.
