"Russian forces deployed on the border with Ukraine and Crimea will not return to their bases," said Shamanov, the head of the Russian Duma's Defense Committee.
He added, of course, that this could change, but that this would happen in the future and would "depend on the actions taken and the actions taken by the other side of the border, Ukraine".
In fact, the head of the Russian Duma and the head of the Russian media talked about an imminent Russian operation as the Ukrainians are not going to transfer back to the interior 90,000 troops that they have gathered since the beginning of January.
Two Russian Armies and 3 VDV Formations were transferred
At the same time, the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that "two Russian armies and 3 formations (VDV) of airborne forces have been transferred to the western border of Russia. The control exercises will be completed in 2 weeks "
By the most optimistic estimates, we are talking about at least 200,000 Russian Army.
At the same time, Russian Su-27SM, Su-30SM, Su-24M and Su-34 fighters are conducting exercises in the Black Sea to welcome the American destroyers tomorrow and the day after tomorrow. The exercises involve virtual attack on surface targets.
In addition, according to last minute information, 15 are the ships of the Caspian Fleet that were transported to the Black Sea and not 10 as originally announced. In practice, this means that there is not even a patrol car left in the Caspian!
Among other things, Russia has transported 2,000 tons of fuel to warehouses and makeshift camps set up along the Ukrainian border.
Russia: NATO transports 40,000 troops to Russia's border
Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu has revealed that "NATO and the United States are transferring forces to the border with Russia in the Black Sea and the Baltic."
At a meeting in Severomorsk, the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated:
Washington is transporting US forces from central North America across the Atlantic to Europe. There is a movement of forces in Europe to the Russian border.
Their main forces are concentrated in the Black Sea and the Baltic.
A total of 40,000 NATO troops and 15,000 armaments, including strategic aircraft, are concentrated on the Russian-Arctic border.
Critical month: The Russians took up arms at the national level - Russian public television is talking about a nuclear strike - Ukraine is calling for reserves!
"War with the US is inevitable"
Another fact of concern. "The head of the Russian news agencies RT and Sputnik and a close associate of the Kremlin have publicly stated that Russia will invade Ukraine and take its territories."
"War with the United States is inevitable," said Margarita Simonyan, head of the Russian news agencies RT and Sputnik. "The conflict will break out, the question is simply when."
"It's time for Russia to move on to a show of force against the United States," he said, predicting a war that will be dominated by cyberattacks, power outages and the Internet, as well as attacks on US infrastructure.
I do not believe that there will be a large-scale war like the Second World War and I do not believe that there will be a long Cold War.
There will be a third type of war: Cyberwarfare. Russian cities can be plunged into darkness like the American Florida, New York, Harlem etc.
