Belarus denounces increased military presence near its borders

Minsk, Jan 17 (Prensa Latina) Belarusian President Alexandr Lukashenko on Monday denounced the presence of more than 30,000 soldiers with equipment and armaments near his country's borders, concentrated in Poland and the Baltic States.

During a meeting on the upcoming joint maneuvers between the Armed Forces of Belarus and Russia, the president assured that Warsaw asked the leaders of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) to deploy a system of logistical and technical support at several levels in that nation.

Lukashenko reported that the joint military exercises between Minsk and Moscow are scheduled for February and asked his command post to announce the exact date as soon as possible, “so that we will not be reproached that we have suddenly brought out the troops and we are almost going to fight.”

He explained that the drills will take place on the west and south borders of Belarus, and noted that it is important to carry out solid exercises in that region in order to draw up a plan to deal with the Baltic States and Poland (West) and Ukraine (South), if necessary.

The head of State recalled that in December 2021, he agreed with his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, to hold unscheduled joint maneuvers on the west borders of the State of the Union and on the south flank with Belarus.
