“As of 15 p.m. on Oct. 13, 2014, the number of Russian troops in the border areas of Russia, near the border with Ukraine, shrank by 2,000 people compared with the figure on Oct. 1, 2014. The units of the 200th independent motor rifle brigade left Rostov region (Russia) for the sites of their permanent deployment (Murmansk region, Russia),” he wrote on his Facebook page on Monday.

However, he said, Russian Armed Forces units departing from the border areas are being replaced with new units, i.e. a rotation of troops is underway.

“In particular, there is a rotation of units: the 98th airborne division (the permanent site of deployment – Ivanovo), the 137th airborne regiment (Ryazan, 106th airborne division), other units of the 106th airborne division (headquartered in Tula), and the 45th separate special purpose airborne regiment (Kubinka),” Tymchuk said.
