The Russian occupiers continue to create an offensive grouping of troops for operations in the Slobozhansky direction of north-eastern Ukraine, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine has reported on Facebook.
“Probably, in the coming days, the invaders will try to resume the offensive,” the message reads.
In addition, the Russian army continues to train and send personnel, weapons and equipment to participate in hostilities in Ukraine.
Weapons and military equipment are being prepared at the point of permanent deployment of the 60th Separate Motorized Rifle Brigade (Monastyrishche) of the 5th combined arms army of the Eastern Military District. It is likely that these weapons will be moved to the temporarily occupied territory of the Donetsk Oblast.
On top of that, in order to restore the losses of personnel of the units of the battalion tactical group from the 36th Separate Motorized Rifle Brigade (Borzya, Zabaykalsky Krai) of the 29th combined arms army of the Eastern Military District, military personnel from the specified brigade are being recruited.
The enemy experiences a particular problem when recruiting driver positions and driver-mechanics. The departure of the selected personnel from the permanent deployment point is scheduled for the second half of April of this year," the General Staff added.
