Vadym Skibitskyi: russian Paratroopers Redeployed to Occupied Crimea to Be Sent to WarAfter the restoration, a battalion-tactical group of russian airborne troops was redeployed to the occupied Crimea. It is planned to send it to the russian federation's war against Ukraine.

This was stated by Vadym Skibitsky, the representative of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine, in an interview with Crimea.Reality.

“Military intelligence constantly monitors everything related to the airspace of the occupied territories, the Crimean Peninsula, the Black Sea. Because it is a danger for us. The first threat is the use of tactical army aviation. Military goods are constantly transported to the Crimean Peninsula. Therefore, transporters in Crimea are not news for us, because the same missiles for the S-300 and S-400 anti-aircraft missile systems are being redeployed. Other military cargo is being moved. The staff is redeploying. We know that the battalion-tactical group of the airborne troops has now entered after its restoration - it entered the Crimea and after that will advance to the territory of southern Ukraine. So there is constant redeployment. They strengthened the air defence system. They understand that there is a threat,” said Skibitskyi, commenting on the information that on July 17, a russian heavy transport aircraft arrived at the Belbek military airfield near Sevastopol.
