Joint military exercises of Russia and Belarus “West-2017” may be a cover to attack the Russian army in the Ukraine. On Thursday, said Secretary of national security Council and defence of Ukraine (NSDC) Oleksandr Turchynov.
He said that does not rule out a variant at which Russia could carry out “covert activities” in preparation for strategic offensive.

Turchinov also noted that Kiev has every reason to believe that after the exercise, Russian troops will not withdraw from the territory of Belarus.
Note that in late March, a similar view was expressed by the speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Andrew Parubiy. He also suggested that Russian troops attack Ukraine from Belarus and Russia.
