The Russian invasion of Ukraine is now on its fifth day. The city of Mauripol, which is key to Ukrainians holding on to the Eastern front, appears ready to collapse as Russian forces have encircled the city and the situation looks increasingly dire. The Russian military is also advancing in to Kharkiv, another Ukrainian city and has stepped up its bombing campaign in the area. The capital of Kyiv is nearly encircled and Russia began intensifying its invasion there today.
Today, Alexander Lukashenko, who is the President of Belarus and a key ally of Putin may have accidentally revealed the country that Russia plans to invade next. During an address to top security officials in the country, he showed a battle map that indicates that Russia will launch an invasion of Moldova from Southern Ukraine.
The Daily Mail Reports-
“Belarussian President Alexander Lukashenko appears to have indicated Vladimir Putin’s forces have plans to invade Moldova.
Putin’s war-mongering sidekick addressed security officials today while standing in front of a battle map that seems to show a planned operation from southern Ukraine into its tiny neighbour.
The map also showed proposed battle plans for Russian troops across the country.
It detailed Russian lines of attack heading into Ukraine, some of which have materialised in the first few days of the invasion – such as forces storming towards Kyiv from the north, and towards Kherson from Crimea.
But they also showed off several attacks that have yet to come to pass – with one even appearing to point from the port city of Odessa into Moldova, suggesting Russia plans to march troops into Ukraine’s neighbour.”
