[Ticker] Russian military base near Finnish border emptied

EU Reporter

Satellite images obtained by Finnish public broadcaster Yle have revealed that much of the military equipment at Russia’s Alakurtti military base near the Finnish border has been removed. “It’s very likely they were transported by train to Ukraine,” military expert Marko Eklund estimated. Since mid-May, more than 100 vehicles have departed from Alakurtti, enough to arm one battalion or roughly 800 soldiers.
