Russian Helicopters May Be On The Move, But No Evidence They're Near The Border
6 years
Lugansk 'Practically Completely Surrounded' By Ukrainian Forces
We've been tracing an interesting report, a video that claims to show Russian helicopters flying toward the Ukrainian border near  Losevo, Pavlovsky District, Voronezh Region (approximately here on a map):

Dramatic video. However our staff has spent hours looking for terrain like this in the area. We haven't found it. The highway is completely different in this area.

However, that may be because the video was taken elsewhere.

In fact, that area is a very close match, and while we have not located the exact location where this video was taken, we're fairly confident that this is a match.

So the helicopters may have been filmed flying west, which is definitely in the direction of the Ukrainian border, but this is a long way from the border. It may be evidence, however, that the Russian army is mobilizing to the west. There's certainly other evidence that suggests that. But as of now, we haven't seen any videos that suggest a move across the border is immediately imminent.
