The territory of Belarus continues to be actively used by Russia to carry out acts of aggression against Ukraine.

This was stated by Deputy Minister of Defense of Ukraine Anna Maliar, who spoke with the Ukrainian TV channels, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"The enemy hasn’t abandoned its plans to capture Donetsk and Luhansk regions completely, along their geographical borders. They are also encroaching on Kharkiv region and trying to toughen their stance there, regroup troops, and fixate their positions. And now we see missile systems in the Gomel area as the enemy is trying to amass them there, and this is obviously due to plans to launch missile strikes or use them there as a tool of blackmail and intimidation. Therefore, the territory of Belarus continues to be actively used by Russia to carry out aggression," Maliar said.

According to the official, the enemy has not abandoned any of its goals, and even the withdrawal of troops from Kyiv and Chernihiv is not a voluntary pullback, but the result of the efforts of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

As Ukrinform reported earlier, as of March 31, the Russians are withdrawing their forces in Kyiv region, but at present it is difficult to say that their forces are significantly retreating from Chernihiv region.
