MOSCOW, February 18. /TASS/. A battalion of Russian airborne forces will be deployed on a permanent basis in Crimea in 2017-2018 and will be reorganized into a regiment in 2020, a source in Russia’s Armed Forces General Staff said on Thursday.
"A decision has been taken to deploy an air assault battalion of the 7th division in Crimea within two years - 2017-2018. On its basis, a third regiment will be created after 2020," the source said.
