The Ukrainian helicopter did not invade the airspace of Belarus, the state border service of Ukraine said on Saturday, December 4.

“The information of the Belarusian side about the violation of the airspace by the Mi-8 helicopter by Ukraine does not correspond to reality,” the ministry said. According to Ukrainian border guards, during the operation to monitor the Ukrainian-Belarusian border, there were no “violations, including the violation of the airspace of the neighboring country.”

Earlier on the same day, the State Border Committee of Belarus announced an “incident” that arose due to “Ukraine’s conduct of exercises on the border.” Belarusian border guards claimed that the Ukrainian Mi-8 flew up to one kilometer inland at an altitude of about 100 meters.

The tense situation on the border of Russia and Ukraine

This message came against the backdrop of a tense situation on the border between Ukraine and Russia. According to American intelligence, the Russian Federation is planning an invasion of Ukraine, possibly as early as 2022. This was reported on December 4 by the AP news agency, citing an unnamed interlocutor in the presidential administration of the United States.

The Washington Post newspaper, citing information from American intelligence, writes that an attack can occur simultaneously in several directions: from the north of the annexed Crimea, through separatist-controlled territories in the east and from the northern border of Ukraine.
