A two-minute clip from a leaked video captioned “ready to fight” appears to show Russian troops maneuvering tanks into position near the Ukrainian border as tensions between neighboring countries escalate.

The clip, apparently recorded by Russian soldiers, captures a group of armored vehicles gathering in a muddy field, then switches to show an assortment of military trucks that have been loaded onto a train for long-distance transport, The Sun reported.

A short scene titled “Military Training” shows a large piece of crane-like machinery behind a corrugated iron fence.

The Biden administration said this week that the United States may send warships to the Black Sea in the coming weeks to counter Russia’s increased military presence on the Ukrainian border.

Russia’s annexation of the Ukrainian region of Crimea in 2014 led to the imposition of US and European sanctions and sparked an ongoing conflict there.

Ukrainian officials say the fighting has killed 14,000 people.
