According to local reports, the Russian military has recently sent multiple battalions of troops and 40 tanks to Luhansk to bolster separatist forces.

There is clear evidence that new battalions of the tactical group have arrived at the Kadamovsky and Kuzminsky training grounds, as well as the units of the third motorized rifle division are deployed along the state border in Luhansk region,” said Commander of Ukraine’s Joint Forces Serhiy Nayev.
