Ukraine increases minefields along entire state border with Russia and Belarus
In case of another attack from the North, Ukrainian troops mine the entire territory near the border with Belarus and the Russian Federation
Serhii Naiev, the Commander of the Joint Forces of Ukrainian Armed Forces, wrote about this on Telegram.
"It doesn't matter to us whether it's the state border with the Republic of Belarus or the Russian Federation - these are our enemies. Therefore, the border is densely mined wherever there is a threat of enemy attack," the message reads.
It is noted that each mine-explosive barrier and minefield must be covered by a combined arms unit so that troops do not allow enemy sapper units to attempt demining.
Andriy Demchenko, spokesman for the State Border Guard Service, said that despite everything, Russia could again try to use Belarus to escalate its aggression against Ukraine.
