About 20 brigades and regiments of the Russian army are being thrown against Ukraine in Donbas. So writes the journalist network site: The Forgotten Regiment (zpolk.org):Therefore, we publish this information about which troops have been moved into areas of active combat in Ukraine. We hope that this will become a reference point for family members who are worried about the fate of their relatives serving in the military.
This information, for obvious reasons, cannot be absolutely 100% accurate. But it is confirmed by fragmentary statements coming from the [Russian Federation] Ministry of Defense and journalist publications.
