The Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense denied rumors about alleged plans for an attack on the territory of Ukraine from Belarus at the end of November. This is a “stuffing” of the Russian command, which wants Ukraine to transfer troops to the north from other directions. About it informs GUR.

The GUR said that the information that has been circulating in recent days about the alleged plans of the enemy to attack Ukraine with a strike group of Russia and Belarus from the northern borders of Ukraine at the end of November is not true.
“This information is reinforced by anonymous “stuffing” about a massive missile and air attack preceding such an invasion,” the GUR added.
The intelligence explained that this was an informational special operation of the enemy, which had several goals.
The first is to provoke Ukraine to transfer a significant part of the troops to the border with Belarus in order to weaken the offensive potential of the Armed Forces in the east and south of Ukraine.
“And at the same time show the Belarusians the alleged intentions of our state to attack the territory of Belarus, thereby provoking the Belarusians to join the war,” the GUR wrote.
The third goal of the Russian invaders is to sow panic among the Ukrainian society.
The fact that the enemy is conducting an information-psychological special operation, according to the GUR, is indicated, among other things, by the fact that at first such messages indicated the date of a possible invasion on November 25-28, and a few hours later it changed to November 28-29.
“We urge citizens not to be subjected to enemy provocations and to trust only official sources of information,” the intelligence service said.
The Main Intelligence Directorate noted that the Defense Forces provide reliable protection of the northern borders of Ukraine, and are ready at any moment to repel an enemy attack.
“In addition, we inform you that, according to intelligence data, there is no strike force on the territory of Belarus that can perform such tasks,” the GUR stressed.
