Amid Kharkiv Escalation, Mysterious New Symbol Appears on Russia’s Military Equipment

As the conflict between Russia and Ukraine escalates, a new tactical emblem has been observed on Russian military equipment near Kharkiv. This symbol, characterised by a central square with two overlapping diagonal crosses, indicates a significant escalation in Russia's military operations, particularly in the Kharkiv Region. According to reports from OSINT Defender, this emblem is linked to Russia's renewed border offensive in northeast Ukraine, with Russian forces actively attempting to breach Ukrainian defences, notably around Vovchansk. These symbols serve as identification friend or foe (IFF) measures in conflict zones, aiming to prevent friendly fire. Notably, the 'Z' marking, prominent during the 2022 Ukraine invasion, became a symbol of Russian support for the war effort. #RussiaMilitaryMysteriousSymbol #MysteriousSymbol #RussiaKharkivAttack #KharkivInvasion #RussiaAttacksKharkiv #Ukraine #Kharkiv #Frontline #Intel #Putin #Zelensky #NATO #US #Military #Defense #Security #War #Russia #Admission #Crisis ~HT.178~PR.152~ED.103~GR.124~
