Some peculiar news from 404.
Ukrainian forces have destroyed almost all bridges and mined the roads along the border with Belarus, Anatoly Lappo, chairman of the State Border Committee of Belarus, said on Sunday. Minsk has accused Kiev of planning imminent strikes on its territory. "Today, almost all border bridges have been blown up, and automobile and railway border routes are completely mined,” Lappo told Belarusian TV, according to Russia’s Interfax news agency. Ukrainian forces have fortified the border "to the extent that they put anti-tank mines in three rows on the roads," Lappo said. The troops Kiev has sent to the border are “not border guards,” Lappo claimed. “We are under pressure, they are aiming at our border guards, sometimes they shoot in the air, constant aerial reconnaissance is being carried out,” he added. A day before the news broke, Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry claimed that its ambassador to Belarus was summoned to the Belarusian Foreign Ministry and handed an official note saying that “Ukraine is planning to conduct a strike on the territory of Belarus.” The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said that it “categorically rejects” the accusation, adding that it could be part of a Russian plan to “stage a provocation and further accuse” Kiev.
The speculations abound, ranging from Kiev regime's fear of Belarus' involvement into SMO to cutting Ukrainian citizens escape to Belarus, but it is clear that Kiev doesn't do anything without approval from London and D.C. Obviously this news, naturally, are not reported in the West, while they made it all over Russia, and Belarus, of course.
Each time I need to remind people about a dire need to constantly keep an eye on a larger picture. All signs of a panic in D.C. are in place now. Here is me talking about it today:
