Meanwhile, reports are doing the rounds that Belarus airborne forces are also preparing to invade Ukraine. 

According to the reports, Belarus special forces were seen boarding planes on Sunday, for deployment near Kyiv. 

However, reports stated that “it is not entirely possible to verify this report” as claims made by independent opposition journalists of Belarus, who fled the country, escaping repressions by the regime of dictator Alexander Lukashenko.
