According to received information, the unit was redeployed to the Rostov region before June 20, 2015. It allegedly consists of a tank company, temporarily deployed in Myasnikovskyi district. Information on personnel is being specified. It is possible that together with tank men, a full tactical group of the 6th tank brigade has been redeployed to the Rostov region, including mechanized infantry, artillery, and support units.

As reported earlier, this is not the first trip of Mulino tank men to the Rostov region. In fall 2014, a combined unit of the 6th tank brigade with large-dotted marking signs was seen in one of the field camps of the Russian group of troops in Matveevo-Kurganskyi district of the Rostov region. Hit and burned tanks of the same brigade were noticed in Ukraine. Moreover, there is a video by Ukrainian soldiers that shows militant of this tank brigade being interrogated, please follow the link.

After fall-winter rotation, tanks of the Mulino brigade have not been seen in the Rostov region. Chances are that the remaining equipment was taken away for repair. Now, tanks of the 6th tank brigade were redeployed to the Ukrainian border again within another rotation.

"Names and faces of Russian soldiers from the 6th tank brigade were concealed in order to secure them from FSB-related wipers [who delete social network images and content after it is being revealed - ed.], so we have chances to follow the unit further," Komakhidze wrote.
