Perhaps: Within 2 days? Russian and Belarusian joint military exercises are scheduled to end on the 20th, February. If they come from Belarus, main battle tanks could be in Kiev in less than 2 hours without having to cross the Dnieper. or Perhaps: It ain't gonna happen? If Russia's concern is security Then It would make sense for Russia to seize the land south of a line between Zaporizhzya and Donetsk, effectively turning the sea of Azov into a Russian lake. Using ships, the Russians have already blocked off access to the sea of Azov to nato warships. but Taking the land seems unlikely?
