The Minsk agreements, ceasefire, demilitarization and the withdrawal of troops. All good terms for those who understand their importance and try to implement them. Unfortunately, terrorist groups operating Donbass do not belong in this category. Our friends, the community of information gathering volunteers at InformNapalm, which we recently supported vis the project Upgrade InformNapalm, have recorded another cluster of enemy armored vehicles in the occupied territories. Currently, equipment is based on the outskirts Chistyakov (the former Torez). The team has also identified most of this technology. It turns out some units have direct Russian origins, because they are used exclusively by the Russian army.
The military hardware includes dozens of tanks of Soviet origin with subsequent modifications, infantry fighting vehicles, and large caliber self-propelled artillery. There are also some surprising pieces of equipment: a Russian “Strela” anti-aircraft missile system, a Russian mobile medical station, which is the base for field surgeons and two “Meteorite” mine-installations – a rather formidable machine that shoots explosive charges and serves for rope laying in aisles in minefields and destroying enemy manpower.
The volunteers of InformNapalm receive all data received as a result of aerial reconnaissance and OSINT: that is through the careful analysis of social networks and public data sources. Given that Russian leaders are trying to distance themselves from participation in the conflict, these are some interesting findings. They once again directly indicate that Russia is directly interested in the activities of terrorists and terrorist groups – supplying them with a wide range of hard arms.
It is clear despite the misleading rhetoric put forward by the Russians to the international community, the ultimate goal of the militants is not peace. It is clear the Russian armored vehicles abandoned in the Donbas are not to plow the fields and plant flowers in flowerbeds. However, we’ll not cause panic. In this situation only one course of action is appropriate: use every minute of relative calm to prepare. For example, to strengthen the combat capability of Ukraine’s Army. It is very simple: in the project Rapid Response we meet the most pressing material needs of units that are at the front. Ebery donation counts.
