RUSSIAN bombers and armoured vehicles have been deployed to the border sparking fears a Ukraine invasion is imminent.
Fresh footage shows the Russian tanks on manoeuvres in a region bordering Ukraine as new frontier curbs have been imposed by Moscow.
A major air base for bombers in the same district, Voronezh, has also reopened after an eight-year upgrade.
The ‘Baltimore” airfield is home to Russia’s 47th bomber regiment, part of the 105th Combined Air Division of the Western Military District, and is just 105 miles from the Ukrainian border.
This has only fuelled Western claims - denied by the Kremlin - that Vladimir Putin is preparing for invasion.
The first 17 Su-34 fighter bombers were deployed at the base in recent days when a reopening ceremony was held, according to reports.
