    Ruser said, " these maps show the locations of all the Indian and Chinese structures, tents and vehicles within the Galwan Valley on both May 22 and June 22. Both India and China have injected a lot of infrastructure in the region. The Chinese troops are far more forward."

    "Satellite imagery from the Galwan Valley on June 22nd shows that 'disengagement' really isn't the word that the government should be using. This gif shows the small outpost that sparked the June 15th clashes. It has grown hugely in size. Indian troops aren't dismantling this one," Ruser also said.

    "The number of Chinese structures/tents and vehicles within 1km of the LAC has grown from 3 to 46 (1,500 per cent increase), the number of Indian structures ect has decreased to 17 from 84 in May (decrease of 80 per cent)," Ruser further added.
