UKRAINE yesterday held what it called a “special operation” at the border with Belarus, including drone exercises and military drills for anti-tank and airborne units. It has deployed 8 500 extra troops to its border with Belarus, saying it fears being drawn into the migrant crisis, which has seen the EU accuse Minsk of flying in people from the Middle East and pushing them to enter Poland. Belarus denies this. Kyiv also worries that the border with Belarus, a close Russian ally, could be used by Russia for military assault. Moscow has dismissed this and defended its right to deploy its troops.
