Russia's Buildup On The Ukraine Border -- Washington Post

Russia has been conducting military exercises with some 45,000 combat troops on the eastern border of Ukraine since March 13, destabilizing the eastern part of the country and stoking fears in Kiev of an imminent invasion. The map below is based on a paper released by the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) in April that details which Russian units have been mobilized and where they are operating. Further analysis by The Washington Post shows where these Russian units have come from and what portion of their regionally available combat forces have shifted to the Ukrainian border.
