Ukraine says threat ‘growing’ of new offensive from Belarusian territory

Kyiv says that increasingly hostile statements from Belarus and Russia and the deployment of a joint force are signaling a “growing” threat of an offensive to be launched by Moscow from Belarus, north of Ukraine.

“The aggressive rhetoric of the military-political leadership of Russia and Belarus is intensifying… The threat of the resumption of the offensive by the Russian armed forces on the northern front is growing,” Deputy Chief of the Ukrainian General Staff Oleksiy Gromov says during a briefing.
