The Ukrainian army has deployed significant military contingents along the border with Belarus and periodically tries to test the defense capability of the Union State. This was stated in an interview with TASS by the director of the second department of the CIS countries of the Russian Foreign Ministry Alexei Polishchuk.
“The information that we have and which has been repeatedly voiced in the statements of officials indicates that the Ukrainian army has indeed deployed significant contingents along the Belarusian-Ukrainian border, periodically trying to probe the defense capability of the Union State in one way or another,”
The diplomat recalled that under these conditions, since October 2022, additional units of the joint Regional Group of Forces have been deployed in Belarus.
“Their task is to serve as a deterrent from invading the territory of the Union State and to minimize the risks of penetration by sabotage and reconnaissance groups. We proceed from the fact that the Russian and Belarusian means available in this region are sufficient to repel aggression from the territory of Ukraine or neighboring NATO countries. We hope that the Kyiv regime and their Western curators will have the common sense not to undertake military adventures, the consequences of which for them can be very serious,”
