The situation on the ground is evolving rapidly and the threat of renewed hostilities is ever-present. This briefing will provide and up-to-date picture of Russian troop movements and hardware transfers at the borders with Ukraine and Belarus. 

The briefing will explore how satellite imagery and technical open-source intelligence can help assess the situation on the ground as well as understand the nature of Russian deployments at key military sites in the Western Military District. It will also focus on Moscow’s intentions and scenarios towards Ukraine in light of recent strategic discussions between Russia and the United States.
