The Republic of Belarus has been making Ukrainians nervous and expecting an invasion in the western part of the country. Politicians and military analysts also do not rule out the possibility of Belarus entering the war against Ukraine. However, while earlier experts recorded intelligence activity from Minsk, in the last few days, something strange has been happening on the border with Ukraine.
The armed forces of Belarus are conducting exercises in the Gomel — near the Chernihiv region, Ukraine. The movement of equipment has also been recorded, but it is not known whether the working weapons are being delivered to the border.
"To carry out operational disguise activities and demonstrate their presence, units of the armed forces of the Republic of Belarus are deployed in areas bordering Ukraine with wooden shell tanks. In addition, the verification of the combat readiness of the Belarusian troops, which will continue tentatively until June 25 this year," said the speaker of the Ministry of defense, Oleksandr Motuzianyk.
Perhaps such a step was taken by the aggressor country and its supporters to disperse the forces of the Ukrainian army and hold on to previously captured positions. Maybe Lukashenko is not ready to fully submit to Putin and engage in a bloody war. Therefore, only wooden models of Belarusian tanks look towards Kyiv.
At the same time, adviser to the interior minister Vadym Denysenko claims that about 4.000 soldiers of the Belarusian army are concentrated on the border. The threat of missile attacks from the territory of Belarus has not disappeared, there are also Russian launchers.
