Deputy Chief of the Main Operational Directorate of Ukraine’s General Staff Oleksiy Hromov said at a briefing on Nov. 24 that Russia was spreading fake information to justify its actions.
“The enemy is spreading information and preparing its troops for a so-called ‘possible escalation of the situation’ in the period from Nov. 23 to Nov. 28 on the Russian-Ukrainian border,” Hromov said.
“(Russia is claiming) that ‘NATO and Ukraine will seek to seize the border areas of peaceful Belarus and Russia.’”

Russia allegedly wants to prevent a “breakthrough of sabotage and reconnaissance groups of Ukraine’s Defense Forces into the Russian territory,” Hromov said.
Ukraine’s General Staff earlier said that about 10,000-15,000 Belarusian security forces are ready to take part in Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
