"Concentration of Russian troops in Novoazovsk vicinity is under way. The number of heavy equipment, tanks, artillery, mercenaries and the Russian Federation Armed Forces' regular servicemen is constantly increasing," Shkiriak said.
In addition, the concentration of militants was recorded near Horlivka. The number of Russian military personnel is also growing there.
Earlier, the ATO headquarters reported that the militants' statements on withdrawal of heavy weapons are used to disguise its redeployment to the Mariupol direction.
