After 9 a.m., an air raid alert was announced throughout Ukraine, except for occupied Crimea.

Russia has been firing missiles at Ukraine from the territory of Belarus since the beginning of the full-scale invasion.

Throughout the war, Russia has been using Belarus as staging grounds to first invade northern Ukraine in February-March, and subsequently – to launch air and drone strikes at Ukraine’s civilian infrastructure.

Belarusian dictator Alexander Lukashenko ruled out the possibility of sending the Belarusian troops to fight against Ukraine on Nov. 4, saying “we have no business there in Ukraine.”
