A huge convoy of Russian armor, about 40 miles long, is advancing at Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine, satellite images showed.

According to Reuters, citing a US private company, satellite images taken on Monday show a Russian military convoy north of the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv that stretches for about 40 miles (64 km), substantially longer than the 17 miles (27 km).

Satellite imagery company Maxar Technology says that additional ground forces deployments and ground attack helicopter units were seen in southern Belarus, less than 20 miles (32 km) north of the Ukraine border 

“The column of Russian armor advancing on Kyiv is 17 miles (27km) long are inaccurate. The convoy actually stretches about 40 miles,” Maxar also said.

The company added that new images also show ground troops and attack helicopters in southern Belarus, less than 20 miles from the Ukraine border, reports BBC.
