The increased activity of the main intelligence directorate of the Russian General Staff Special Forces squads, acting on the side of the militants is noted.
"It is worth noting the following trend: these groups were the backbone of the gangs, and they consisted mostly of local militants, and thus, Russian commandos managed to vanish in the crowd in April of this year. Currently, the Russian special forces act as separate units either in interaction with the terrorist groups and performing specific tasks," Tymchuk said.
To date, Information Resistance military experts have registered the activity of at least 7 Special Forces teams of main intelligence directorate of the Russian General Staff.
Since the beginning of the week there is a decrease of subversive terrorist groups' activity on the liberated territories.
The Information Resistance group explains this by three factors: the militants experience the irretrievable lack of resources in areas of active hostilities in the ATO area (which does not let them to actively conduct raiding operations using subversive groups), lack of support among the locals and efficient enough actions of the Security Service and the Interior Ministry in the liberated areas.
