hundreds of Russian military trucks and tanks are crossing the border
the Russians have also consolidated about 100 km of Ukranian border for free passage
troops are being refreshed by being sent back to Russia while new fresh troops are arriving in Russia (in time for the weekend or join the other troops next week)
the Russians are also digging in and extending their grasp of the territory
and why next week
not because of the sanctions but because Putin is mad as hell about this and unpredictable as he is may be capable to launch new attacks and operations in the weekend or next week to put pressure on the US and Ukraine
the spoiler who is not invited to the party ....
