The maps themselves are printed clearly according to Soviet templates, Soviet toponyms are visible on them. In particular, the city of Mariupol is designated as “Zhdanov”. At the same time, there are marks on top reflecting the location of Ukrainian and Russian troops during the special operation.

“What can be seen: Rostov-on-Don, marks, routes, Donetsk, the Lugansk People’s Republic, also Kharkov — movement both in our direction and in the opposite direction. This is the direction of movement of either equipment or enemy forces, and means both in our direction and in the opposite direction. According to this, it is possible to determine the direction of movement of forces and means. One of the destinations is Rostov-on-Don, Taganrog. It is possible that they want or wanted to [capture the cities],” the commander said.

According to him, the maps were found during the study of occupied positions near Avdeyevka, in houses where enemy command posts were located. They were handed over to the competent authorities, whose specialists, after the study, concluded that the marks of the offensive were applied no later than in July 2022.

There are a lot of “+6°” marks on the maps, which, as the military explained, indicates an adjustment of the data of these old maps compared to more accurate geographical information.

“In this case, it is probably the designation of angles and the addition of degrees in the direction, since the maps are old, and the information was applied to them not so long ago. Perhaps it was an adjustment that they made some marks for themselves on their maps […] Maybe it was the direction of movement so that you can use your maps to navigate along the route,” the commander added.
