SBU announced the creation by Russia of a new army corps near Ukraine


That Russia since December 2015 creates the third army corps on the territory of the Rostov region, has informed in interview “to 5 channel” the head of SBU Vasiliy Gritsak.

“As far as we know, in December 2015, the Russian Federation began to create the third army corps, which was stationed on the territory of the Rostov region. Already appointed the head of this unit — the citizen of Russia”, – quotes the words Hrytsak “Interfax-Ukraine”.

According to Hrytsak, Russia is now actively recruiting citizens in the age of 25-30 years. “First of all, try to equip the citizens of Ukraine. But since morale and desire to fight there is less and less, then comes those who can catch it”, — said Hrytsak.

In September last year, the Agency Reuters citing its own correspondent from the scene reported the construction of a military base in the Belgorod region. The Agency reported that the military camp may be located in the village of Soloti, close to Valuiki, 25 km from the border with the Luhansk region. The reporter saw workers install a metal fence and pave the way to the construction site in a large cornfield near the village. Later wrote that the military town will begin to build the company “Megaline” associated with the St. Petersburg restaurateur and acquaintance of President Yevgeny Prigozhin.

In late September, Reuters reported that Russia is preparing to build a second large military base near the border with Ukraine. Second base, according to the Agency, will be located on the outskirts of the city of Boguchar of the Voronezh region,
