Russia and Belarus deploy soldiers close to Poland border as UK airforce intercepts Putin's bombers over North Sea


The White House has warned that Russia president, Vladimir Putin is preparing for an invasion of eastern Ukraine as Russia deploys soldiers in Belarus just a few miles from the Polish border on Friday, November 12, while the UK Royal Airforce intercepted Russian nuclear capable bombers over the North Sea.


This comes as Poland and Belarus engage in a face off with 15,000 Polish and NATO soldiers on the border with Belarus after the EU and US accused Belarus dictator Lukashenko of sponsoring a border crises with immigrants to punish the West for crippling sanctions on its economy for human rights abuses.







In a Friday statement , Russia's defence ministry said the unannounced drill with Belarus involved paratroopers from both countries dropping at the Gozhsky range, just 20 miles from where thousands of migrants are gathered at the Polish border.


Both countries soldiers practiced 'capturing bridges as well as hunting down and destroying enemy patrols'.









At the same time, Polish defence minister Mariusz B?aszczak revealed that British military engineers have been deployed to help strengthen the border defences, amid warnings from all sides that the crisis risks spilling over into an armed conflict.



Amidst the tensions, RAF Typhoon jets were also scrambled to escort two Russian nuclear-capable bombers which flew over the North Sea and towards the English Channel on Friday.


Also on Thursday, two supersonic Tu-22M3 nuclear bombers were seen performing 'tasks of combat alert for air defense' in support of the Belarus leader, the Russian defense ministry said in response to the rising tensions on the border.Latest Post
