Near Voronezh, 250 km from the Ukrainian border, Russian troops deployed fully armed Buk anti-aircraft missile systems.

This was reported by a group of Russian independent bloggers from the Conflict Intelligence Team in Telegram , referring to the footage they received from the suburbs of Voronezh.

In April 2020, a large military camp was deployed in that part of the Voronezh Region, where military equipment from different regions of the Russian Federation is being transferred.

The videos were filmed at the Maslovka railway station and posted on TikTok. A lot of Msta-S self-propelled artillery mounts, T-80U tanks, and BUK M1 air defense systems were caught on camera: a Buk 9K37 air defense missile launcher, a Buk 9K37 Buk air defense missile launcher, KrAZ transport vehicles for missiles 9M38.https://www.unian.net/player/Wtpgn7DuTransfer of “BUK” by Russia towards the border of Ukraine

According to CIT, trains arrived at the station from the Moscow Region (Naro-Fominsk), the Nizhny Novgorod Region (Ilyino) and the Smolensk Region (Krasny Bor).

The 4th Guards Tank Division, the 288th Artillery Brigade and the 49th Anti-Aircraft Missile Brigade are stationed not far from these stations. All of them are part of the First Guards Tank Army.

“These data allow us to conclude that despite the talks between Putin and Biden, the concentration of Russian troops in the areas bordering the territories controlled by Kiev continues,” the organization notes.

One of the videos filmed in Maslovka shows the date and time of shooting – December 6, 14:36, that is, more than a day before the negotiations.

A new escalation on the border is possible: what is known

As UNIAN reported earlier, the Washington Post, referring to the statements of its anonymous sources, wrote that Russia has resumed its military build-up on the border with Ukraine. In addition, videos with echelons of military equipment, in particular tanks and missiles, which are being transported to the southern and western regions of Russia, began to appear on social networks. According to the newspaper, the US and Europe drew attention to this after the completion of the Russian-Belarusian military exercises “West-2021”.

The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine then denied the information spread by The Washington Post that Russia was building up military forces near the Ukrainian border. The data on the movement of Russian troops published in the media were called by the Ministry of Defense “an element of special information and psychological actions, which are, in fact, planned measures within the framework of the movement of troops after the completion of the exercises.”

Later, Politico published fresh satellite photos that confirm reports that Russia is again concentrating troops and military equipment on the border with Ukraine.

Subsequently, the head of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, Kirill Budanov, in an interview with the Military Times, said that Russia had concentrated 92 thousand troops near the border with Ukraine and was preparing for an invasion in late January – early February 2022.

Recently, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba announced that Russia has deployed 115,000 troops near Ukraine’s borders .

According to the Financial Times, Western intelligence assumes a “high likelihood of destabilization” of Ukraine by Russia this winter.

Moscow denies accusations of preparing an attack on Ukraine and, conversely, points to the intensification of NATO forces near the Russian borders.

At a press conference on November 26, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy expressed the opinion that an escalation on the part of Russia on the border by the militants it supports in Donbas could happen any day.
