Military observers have suggested that the buildup of Russian troops on Ukraine’s eastern border is so large that it is either the most expensive military exercise in world history or Vladimir Putin is positioning his army for a massive invasion of the former Soviet state. On Monday the Israeli-based Debka File news agency reported that sources inside the U.S. Department of Defense strongly believe both countries are mobilizing military assets in anticipation of a first battle over the rebel-held flashpoint town of Slavyansk.

“The outcome will determine who controls the Donetsk region and possibly all of East Ukraine – the separatists or the provisional government in Kiev,” reports Debka. Given that Russia has one of the largest and well armed militaries in the world, the prospects of war don’t bode well for Ukraine. “With a superior, professional and well-trained force armed with a preponderance of fire power, the Kremlin has several options to choose from for this engagement,” none of which work in Ukraine’s favor.

While Washington is seemingly ignoring the possibility of an all out confrontation, time may be running short. Secretary of State John Kerry confirmed this morning that U.S. intelligence agencies intercepted numerous communications between Moscow and pro-Russian separatist leaders who may be responsible for numerous shootings at military installations and government buildings over the last two weeks.

“Intel is producing taped conversations of intelligence operatives taking their orders from Moscow and everybody can tell the difference in the accents, in the idioms, in the language. We know exactly who’s giving those orders, we know where they are coming from,” Kerry said at a private meeting of the Tri Lateral Commission in Washington on Tuesday.

But the one indicator that Russia is not simply putting troops on the border for show is a report from St. Petersburg’s Rustlegraph news agency, which claims that the Russian Ministry of Defense has ordered medical brigades to be quickly assembled for deployment to the border.

According to the report, the brigades are now standing by at the Russian Military Medical Academy in Kirov, approximately 600 miles or about a 12 hour drive from the Ukrainian border.
