Ukraine: Main land and air force dispositions

*Click to enlarge. Numbers accompanying symbols indicate unit designations.

Analysts in the IISS Defence and Military Analysis Programme have produced a map of Ukraine’s army and air force bases and force dispositions, following the tensions between Russia and Ukraine and the developing crisis in Crimea. Naval and maritime assets are excluded from the map.

This shows forces by size and role indicator and generalised peacetime locations; any movement of units in response to the current crisis is not reflected here, due to the difficulty in gathering reliable information.

Additional detail on regional and international military capabilities can be found in the Russia and Eurasia chapter of The Military Balance 2014.
