“We did not deploy a single platoon, not a single company there, on the border. The commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces did not give such an order. But we have plans to fight back any aggression,” the president assured during a meeting to analyze the border situation.

Lukashenko informed that more than 20 thousand troops, with airplanes and armored vehicles, are near the borders with his country, especially in Poland, reported the local news agency Belta.

“All this is done under the pretext of protecting the European Union from the invasion of refugees from the countries bombed and plundered by the Western coalition, led by the United States,” he stressed.

Belarusian Defense Minister Victor Jrenin stated that there was no logical explanation for the actions of the Polish military on the border.

“It is difficult to calculate what decisions they make. Although we suppose that probably our neighbors are trying to get political and economic bonuses and, perhaps, even involve the whole EU in this problem created on our state border, he stated.

According to the senior official, in the midst of the current migration crisis Poland deployed up to 23 thousand soldiers and armored vehicles near the borders between the two countries and set up 13 camps for them.
