New satellite imagery shows Russia's steady buildup of its military assets near Ukraine, namely in Belarus, occupied Crimea, and Russia's western regions. They show the expansion of the current Russian training grounds and garrisons within a radius of about 240 km from the Ukrainian border, CNN reports.

The images were taken by Maxar Technologies. The company stresses that they reflect the increased level of activity and readiness of the Russian side. When comparing imagery of the same military camp at Novoozerne in Crimea, taken in September and late January, a significant build-up is observed.

According to the analysts at Rochan Consulting, there are currently between 74 and 76 Russian battalion tactical groups around Ukraine (they usually comprise of about 1,000 soldiers). According to their estimates, there are at least 48 missile launchers near the Ukrainian border.

Context. Recall: President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, during a briefing for foreign journalists, stated that the panic whipped up by the NATO and US around invasion is hitting the Ukrainian economy.

NATO responded to the reproaches of the Ukrainian authorities. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg stressed that he was receiving a lot of intelligence showing the apparent continuation of Moscow's build-up of forces near the Ukrainian border and that it would be irresponsible not to react to the largest military buildup in Europe since World War Two.
