How Russia hides its hardware in Ukraine.
As I’ve mentioned before, the majority of Russia’s vast military hardware in Ukraine is scattered and hidden all along the 457 km front line. With that in mind, here’s a good example illustrating this.
In Ukraine’s Donetsk Oblast (province) there’s an industrial compound next to the small village of Samiilove. It’s located just 5 km from Russia controlled Ukrainian border crossing at Kuznetsi. Russian forces arrived at Samiilove in either late 2014, or early 2015. From the start, MLRS rocket systems were seen based there (see header image).
As shown by the Google Earth image below, these rocket systems are routinely seen aimed towards Ukrainian held Mariupol city area. When not in use they are hidden between in the trees. See last image from July 2017.
