In January, a commission came to our unit to check equipment and hold marches. The personnel was dressed, equipped with bulletproof vests, helmets, harnesses, and weapons. Military inspections were held almost daily. The equipment was thoroughly prepared: armored personnel carriers, tanks. They were filled completely with ammunition, military exercises were conducted, the personnel was trained. The propagandists worked saying that this was training so that the personnel would know nothing. But we as officers understood that it was for the purpose. And we knew that an assault on Ukraine was being prepared, – Rudenko told. – And so by February 20 military units of Crimea, these were 810 (Sevastopol), 12676 (Pereval’ne) were fully staffed, and sent to Cape Opuk near Kerch for preparation and exercises, but the trainings were held with combat shells of all kinds: howitzers, missiles, tanks , SPGs, as well as training of personnel for shooting with Kalashnikovs, machine guns and grenade launchers. “
