Russian troops in Crimea are shown in marching order – where?

Subsequent satellite images (February 19, 2022) were taken ImageSat International Eros reconnaissance satellite. Despite the fact that the Russian Ministry of Defense announced on February 15 the withdrawal of units from the peninsula, the pictures of February 19 show the continuation of the increase of Russian military forces in Crimea. Satellite images show military concentrations in settlements and open areas around the village of Novoazernoye on the western side of the Crimean peninsula.
