A ditch, an embankment, a reinforced concrete wall with barbed wire: these are the engineering barriers being built in Volyn Oblast. About 3 km of the border has thus already been covered, and the work is ongoing. This is not all, but we will not reveal the details. Works are also being carried out in Rivne and Zhytomyr oblasts".

Details: Tymoshenko stated that fortifications are being built in an oblast bordering Russia. He added that Ukrainian border guards have "all the necessary equipment to see the enemy far in the rear".

 
 
 
 

Background: 

  • In October, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine reported that Belarus called Ukraine’s ambassador and accused Ukraine of allegedly preparing an attack on the territory of Belarus. The Foreign Ministry supposes that this may be part of a Russian provocation plan.
  • The Defence Minister of Lithuania, Arvydas Anušauskas, linked Belarus’ accusations of Ukraine to a Russian change of tactics in the full-scale war. 
  • British Intelligence thinks that another invasion of Ukraine from the territory of Belarus is unlikely to happen at the moment due to the formation of a new joint force there with the Russian Federation. 
  • The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported that at least two or three months would be needed in order to prepare an attack from Belarus.
