Satellite images from private company Maxar Technologies on Monday show that Russia has recently deployed new offensive forces. Sukhoi Su-34 tactical bombers are now stationed at a base in the Krasnodar Territory on the southern border of Ukraine, and attack helicopters are stationed in Crimea. Moscow seems to have built a pontoon across a river in Belarus near the northern Ukrainian border.
Over the last ten days many tents that look like field hospitals have been set up. Finally, on Tuesday there were massive cyber attacks on the Ministry of Defense and about fifteen Ukrainian banks. Kiev blamed Moscow for denying responsibility.
Pointing to the expectation of “more misinformation from the Russian state media in the coming days” the senior official concluded: “We hope the world is ready”.
