Volfovich said that Ukraine has deployed many military units to the border, estimated at 10,500 troops in Rivne province, 4,500 troops in Chernihiv and about 5,500 troops around the capital Kyiv.
According to Volfovich, Ukraine is laying mines and erecting barricades along the border, and even sabotage and reconnaissance groups have penetrated into Belarusian territory.
Ukraine has not yet commented on this allegation.
Meanwhile, in a report on May 22, The Guardian said that Ukrainian forces have built new defenses along the border areas with Belarus that have not been reinforced for fear of being attacked.
Russian forces entered Ukraine via the Belarusian border in February as Moscow sought control of the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv.
