Glasnost Gone

My latest video looking at some of the main Russian military bases in occupied Ukraine. Just 5 bases hold approx 1,000 tanks, artillery, anti-aircraft systems, trucks and combat vehicles. The bulk of Russian military vehicles in Ukraine remain hidden from view, concealed in industrial buildings etc, or dotted all along the front line.

Today’s OSCE report (see below) lists some 155 Russian tanks and large numbers of artillery and anti-aircraft systems seen in Ukraine on May 26th.

Seeing them change from simple tented camps to large scale bases, with permanent buildings and huge military training areas, gives us a visual insight into the vast sums of money Russia’s occupation of eastern Ukraine has cost.
