Latest Satellite Photos Show New Russian Military Activity Near Ukraine

Recent satellite imagery released by Maxar Technologies shows multiple new field deployments of armored equipment and troops northwest of Belgorod and near Soloti and Valuyki, Russia.

This new activity represents a change in the pattern of the previously observed deployments of battle groups (tanks, armored personnel carriers, artillery and support equipment). Until recently, most of the deployments had been seen primarily positioned at or near existing military garrisons and training areas.
