Russian military convoys, without identification marks, are moving towards the border with the Chernihiv region, Ukraine's North Operational Command reported on a Telegram post on Thursday, Feb. 23. It might be part of preparation for possible provocations by Russian invaders before the day that marks the anniversary of the full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
"It is likely that their goal is to accuse the Ukrainian defenders of violating Belarussian territorial integrity, as the servicemen are dressed in pixel uniforms, similar to the uniforms of the Armed Forces of Ukraine," the command warns.
The North Operational Command has provided assurances that the defense forces of the Northern sector are keeping the situation under control and, "unlike enemy troops, have never resorted to provocations and never pursued such a goal."
"Each soldier observes the generally accepted rules of warfare, not encroaching on foreign territories, but exclusively protecting their native land from an insolent and insidious enemy," the report says.

So much could be resolved by providing ukraine with the tools to gain air supremacy. Combined operations necessitates control of the skys as was demonstrated during desert storm and Iraqi freedom, anything less results in a slow grinding battle of attrition
It seems obvious to me that Putin is arranging a false-flag provocation so that his puppet Lukashenko will order the Belarus military to "defend Belarus" by invading/attacking Ukraine.
Putin is following in Hitler's footsteps, a similar trick was false justification for the 1939 German invasion of Poland. Let us never forget that the way was cleared for WW2 by the Molotov-Ribbentrop non-aggression pact, whereby Hitler & Stalin agreed to divide Poland between them.
@Jan Map, If Lukashenko ordered his troops to attack The Ukraine, that would be the end of Lukashenko. His troops would sack him.
Will the Russians attack Belarus, dressed as Ukrainians to give Lukashenko his excuse to join the war?
I would have planted multiple massive IEDs in the roadways just south of the border with Belarus. Allow the convoy in and when the southernmost vehicle reaches the southernmost IED, let them all have it. The Russians would furnish their own armor wreckage blockade of the roadway.
@Jack do you honestly believe that those roads aren’t cleared before any convoy approaches??? It may surprise you, but other countries have an “EOD” too! 🤦🏻♂️
