"Yle": hundreds of units of military equipment disappeared from the Russian military base on the border with Finland

Hundreds of units of military equipment disappeared on the territory of the Russian military base in the village of Alakurti.

Spacecraft recorded the disappearance from the territory of the Russian military base in the village of Alakurtti, which is less than 50 kilometers from the border with Finland, several hundred pieces of military equipment. According to the Finnish publication Yle, up to a thousand military personnel could also leave the Russian military base along with military equipment.

“Satellite images obtained by Yle show that a large amount of Russian ground forces equipment has gone missing from the Alakurtti military base near the Finnish border. The movement of military equipment has not been publicly reported either in Russia or in Finland. Since mid-May, more than a hundred pieces of equipment and weapons have been removed from Alakurtti, including dozens of armored personnel carriers. The number of vehicles corresponds to the equipment of the combat unit of the battalion. This means that at least a third or even almost half of the approximately 2000 soldiers left the base at the same time., - according to the Finnish edition of "Yle".

Judging by satellite imagery, Russian military equipment is indeed no longer at the same sites, however, experts, contrary to the arguments of the Finnish media, note that against the backdrop of Finland and Sweden joining NATO, the Russian military could be redeployed closer to the Finnish border.

“The military base in Alakurtti is a combat unit. It is logical to assume that due to the expansion of NATO, the Russian military could be deployed along the Finnish border because of the threat created., - the expert marks.
