Kiev transfers fighters and army to the Belarusian-Ukrainian border

According to Sputnik, citing the report of the State Border Service of Ukraine, in addition to border guards with dogs and mobile units in official vehicles, which will continue to serve as normal, planes and drones will be deployed along the cordon to strengthen the grouping on the Belarusian-Ukrainian border, and from the water observation of the situation will be carried out by military boats Safe Boat 27.

“This concentration of troops in a previously safe direction, the department explains by the need to“ prevent offenses and prevent any provocations, non-standard situations, including illegal border crossing, ” the message says.

Taking into account the fact that the length of the Ukrainian-Belarusian border is more than 1,000 kilometers and affects five regions of Ukraine, and even against the background of clearly aggravated relations between Kiev and Minsk in the light of recent events, such a “strengthening” looks more like preparations for an intervention, which is not looks so absurd, surprisingly agreeing with the bellicose statements of Warsaw and the deployment of an additional contingent of US troops on the western borders of Belarus in the Baltic states and Poland.
