Russia moved thousands of troops to the disputed area in 12 hours

New Delhi: Thousands of Russian troops may already be in Ukraine, military sources warned on Tuesday. A daily mail was reported hours after President Vladimir Putin ordered his troops to enter the country for fear of starting land acquisition in the eastern part of the country.

According to sources related to Ukrainian military intelligence, 10,000 soldiers entered the separatist occupied territories overnight, sending 6,000 to Donetsk, 5,000 to Luhansk, and 1,500 to the city of Holifka. ..

“Hard to believe [Putin] It may have worked quickly, but it took a long time to prepare, “said a source.

It was behind a video showing Russian vehicles rolling early in Donetsk, including tanks, armored personnel carriers, and support trucks.

The insignia was not visible, but there was no doubt that it was a Russian army deployed at Putin’s orders, the report said.

Meanwhile, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Putin’s order to recognize Donetsk and Luhansk as independent has spread not only to what is currently occupied by rebels, but throughout the state. The troops dug trenches there, the Daily Mail reported.

After two Kiev soldiers were killed and 12 were injured in the explosion on Tuesday morning, Russian troops invaded and the fighting in the area intensified.

German Prime Minister Olaf Scholz has led world leaders to respond, and the billion-dollar Nord Stream 2 gas pipe (predecessor Angela Merkel’s pet project) from Russia has not been approved, leaving his country. An economy that relies on its fossil fuels has announced that it will look for electricity from gas elsewhere.

US President Joe Biden also denounced limited sanctions on Ukraine’s rebel areas overnight, banning Americans from doing business there, but promised to continue to take stricter measures.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will also announce sanctions on Tuesday, followed by the EU.
