Many are wondering if Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is part of a much bigger strategy by Vladimir Putin to restore the old Communist Soviet Union bloc that once controlled 15 nations.

Alexander Lukashenko, the president of Belarus and close ally of Putin, seemed to suggest as much.

During a video of a security meeting in his country, Lukashenko intimidated Russia was also planning to invade Transnistria, a breakaway state in the country of Moldova, which was once part of the old Soviet Union.

Though Transnistria is still considered to be part of Moldova, the separatists are pro-Russian.

Fox News reports:

“At today’s security council meeting, Lukashenko showed what looks like an actual invasion map,” Belarussian journalist Tadeusz Giczan tweeted Tuesday. “It shows Ukraine military facilities destroyed by missiles from Belarus, attacks directions (everything agrees except Odessa-Transnistria). Also, Ukraine is divided into 4 sectors.” […]

The map appeared to show troop movements, some of which had already happened and some that had not, including the attack on Transnistria, an area controlled by pro-Russian separatists, from Odessa, Ukraine. The Russian military already has a presence there.

The Belarus president has also amassed troops along the border of Ukraine, and many believe if Putin’s army continues to falter, Belarus’s army may join the invasion.

Ukraine was also part of the former Soviet Union communist bloc.
