Russian-led forces amassing military hardware in occupied Donbas - JCCC
Ukrainian members of the Joint Center for the Control and Coordination (JCCC) of the ceasefire and stabilization in Donbas have recorded an unprecedented number of heavy weaponry being amassed in the occupied Donbas.
"The Ukrainian side of the JCCC has recorded an unprecedented number of artillery systems, tanks, and armored combat vehicles outside their permanent storage sites and in violation of withdrawal lines provided for by the Minsk agreements. Also, the militants continue to ignore the 'back-to-school' ceasefire, and increase the number of shellings," the press center of Ukraine's Joint Forces Operation wrote on Facebook.
The JCCC says 472 units of Russian military equipment have been recorded in the occupied territories.
Such amount of equipment makes it possible to deploy up to six battalion-tactical groups," the report says.
As reported earlier, an OSCE UAV spotted a convoy of 10 cargo trucks crossing the uncontrolled section of the border with Russia.
"The presence and constant deployment of artillery means of destruction creates a potential threat from the armed formations of the Russian Federation to the advanced units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine," the JCCC said.
