The Ukrainian military previously said it has shot down several missiles fired towards its territory from Belarus.

After Russia failed to gain the ground it wanted around Kyiv, forces retreated back into Belarus to regroup and redeploy. Belarus has also been recognized as a key ally for Russia on the world stage.

Russia’s attacks have intensified in eastern Ukraine, with heavy shelling in the southern regions of Mykolaiv and Kherson as well, according to the Ukrainian military and regional officials.
