Russia moves elite paratroopers to Ukraine border amid fears of assault on Kiev

 via Mirror

Russia has for the first time moved elite paratroopers close to its border with Ukraine amid fears of a military operation to grab capital Kyiv, it is reported.

A train with the crack troops and their equipment was spotted moving west towards the potential war zone and appears to be the 217th Guards Parachute Regiment of the 98th Airborne Division.

The deployment was seen passing through Russia’s Bryansk region which borders both Ukraine and Belarus, as shown in a video posted on TikTok.

An analysis by respected independent Russian researchers known as the Conflict Intelligence Team (CIT) indicates the tarpaulin-covered armoured vehicles in the video are BMD-4M airborne combat vehicles and BTR-MDM airborne armoured personnel carriers.

“The train includes five passenger carriages, which can carry more than 250 people,” said the CIT.
