12:17 06 September Kyiv, Ukraine

Strengthening the defense of the borders of the Sumy and Chernihiv regions is taking place in order to prevent a second offensive from the Russian Federation. The defense of the borders with Belarus is also being strengthened.

This was announced by the speaker of the State Border Service Andrei Demchenko on the air of the telethon.
"Recently, we have recorded an increase in shelling in the Sumy region, but Chernihiv region is also added to it.. At the same time, the Ukrainian defense forces and border guards are reinforcing these areas in order to prevent the re-invasion of units of the armed forces of the Russian Federation," he said.
According to Demchenko, the creation of a powerful group that could enter the territory of Ukraine is not fixed at the moment.
"Also, the border is strengthened with the Republic of Belarus, because we understand that this country supports the Russian Federation in the war unleashed against Ukraine. And neither the Armed Forces of Ukraine nor the border guards have ever ruled out that the military units of this country could join the Russian war," the speaker of the State Border Guard Service said.
