The US and other Western countries claim that Russia is increasing the deployment of troops in the areas around the Ukraine border.

Fears of war between Russia and Ukraine remain, even as reconciliation efforts continue between the two countries. The latest satellite images showed that Russia has deployed the S-400 missile defense system and Iskander missile in Belarus.  The US and other Western countries claim that Russia is increasing the deployment of troops in the areas around the Ukraine border. He will do so until President Vladimir Putin is confident that he is fully prepared to invade Ukraine.

On Sunday, the US Company released some new satellite images of the border areas of Ukraine. These pictures have revealed the deployment of missiles along the Belarus border with Ukraine. It has also been learned from these that Russia has increased its deployment ahead of Belarus and its joint rehearsal.

Russia and Belarus have announced joint exercises from 10 February to 20 February 2022. Its purpose is to receive training and thwart attacks from the southern borders against their alliance. NATO has called it the biggest deployment since the Cold War. Although Russia has consistently denied that it is planning an attack on Ukraine, the latest developments and rising tensions have raised concerns for Western agencies.

In the above pictures released by the American company Maxar Technology, it is seen that Russia has set up military camps near the Ukraine border. Military units stationed here have missiles, anti-aircraft missiles and other ammunition.

On the other hand, US officials have claimed that Russia is now only a few steps away from launching a major attack on Ukraine. Russia has completed 70 percent of its preparations for an attack on Ukraine. From mid-February, Russia will attack Ukraine if conditions are favorable to deliver additional logistics, heavy equipment, and weapons to the Ukrainian border. More than a million soldiers are already stationed on the border, but Russia has consistently denied preparing for the attack, saying that its troops are practicing there.

However, the US and NATO allies believe that Russia’s intention behind this is not to give Ukraine a chance to prepare for its own defense. US officials said they do not know why the Russian president is going to make such a suicidal decision, even after diplomatic efforts remain a possibility.
