Russia will not launch an attack from Crimea through the land borders, and will attempt to carry out an amphibious operation, said the coordinator of "Information Resistance" group Dmitry Tymchuk.
“We can’t say that the large-scale offensive will launch from the Crimea. The number of Russian troops there is about 30 thousand. Launching an attack through isthmus would not be reasonable from a military point of view. Our troops would simply block it on a narrow section. This is an option of 300 Spartans. I believe that the Russian General Staff plans to conduct an amphibious operation,” the military expert said.
Tymchuk went on saying that over the two years Ukraine has significantly grown in terms of military power. Combat aircraft pilots and Coast Guard Forces obtained serious training and reinforcement.
According to him, Russian militants are actively deploying military equipment to Novoazovskiy area in Mariupol direction. However, the Russian mercenaries are not trained professionals.
“They spoil military equipment, and it has to be replaced. All the equipment comes from Russia to resupply the units. The deployment of additional troops from Russia is not recorded in Ukraine,” Tymchuk said.
August 10, the Russian Federal Security Service distributed a statement on the prevention of terrorist attacks in the Crimea, allegedly plotted by the Chief of the Ukraine's Defense Intelligence.
The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that bringing charges of terrorism against Ukraine in the occupied Crimea sounds as meaningless and cynical.
Thursday, August 11, the Head of state ordered to alert all military units near the administrative border with Crimea, as well as in Donbas.
