Incredible concentration of forces on the Ukrainian-Russian border. At the same time, it seems that Belarus could not avoid its engagement in potential conflict and mobilizes its own military forces.
Moscow warns the West that any deployment of military forces in the region would force it to take emergency measures for its security, but revealed that the situation on the line of contact in eastern Ukraine between Ukrainian government forces and pro-Russian separatist forces is dreaded and that many provocative actions take place there.
This is confirmed by several videos and photos that have been published in the last 24 hours on social media, where armored vehicles, missile systems appear, while some reports speak of small-scale artillery attacks between separatists and Ukrainian forces, but there is no official confirmation so far.

At the same time, Belarus has decided to mobilize its military forces with plans to show military vehicles heading to the border with Ukraine, which shows that the situation can be described as anything but normal.
