Ukraine’s military contingent is being built up near the borders of Belarus, Belarusian President said Alexander Lukashenko.

“Ukraine continues to build up forces, concentrating units of the national guard from the “radical nationalists”. This is even worse than NATO military personnel. And all this is in close proximity to the state border of our country. Again, under the guise of fighting migrants,” the Belarusian leader said.

“Yes, migrants will not get there even in a nightmare. They do not go there and are not going to go to Ukraine, we understand this very well. People are fleeing from Ukraine, and they will “defend themselves from migrants from Belarus,” Lukashenka noted.

At the moment, a special operation “Polesye” is being carried out in Ukraine near the Belarusian borders, up to 10 thousand military personnel have been withdrawn to the border area. As previously reported, aviation, including unmanned aircraft, is involved in the special operation, and the border regime itself on the Ukrainian-Belarusian border has been significantly strengthened.

In addition, patrolling of roads in border areas, control at bus and railway stations, as well as preventive measures in settlements near the borders of the state were announced.

In Ukraine, there is a threat of a crisis due to the possible appearance of migrants who in recent months have been trying to get from Belarus to the European Union through the territory of Lithuania and Poland. In addition, Kiev constantly claims that Russia can use Belarusian territory for a hypothetical invasion.

It was in this vein that they interpreted Alexander Lukashenko’s earlier statements that “Ukraine is preparing to unleash full-scale hostilities.”

“They understand very well: if I unleash a war again in the Donbass or somewhere on the border with Russia, Belarus will not stand aside. And it is clear which side Belarus will be on. They understand this, so they began to strengthen their northern, Belarusian-Ukrainian border. Although there are no facts about this, there are no reasons today,” the Belarusian president said last month.

In response, the head of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry Dmitry Kuleba said that, according to the Ukrainian side, Lukashenka’s statements could mean that an invasion could be expected not just from Belarus, but that Belarusian armed forces could be among the attacking units.

Maybe Ukraine decided to organize a provocation that could lead to war, moreover, with the participation of Russia?

“Back in the fall of 2021, when discussing issues related to the so-called “Russian attack on Ukraine”, I clearly said: this is just an informational cover for deploying aggression from the territory of Ukraine against the Republic of Belarus, the unrecognized republics of Donbass and even Crimea,” recalls military political scientist, Associate Professor of the Department of Political Science and Sociology of the Plekhanov Russian University of Economics Alexander Perendzhiev.

– At the same time, the attack on the borders of Belarus from the “square” then looked like something new in understanding the events around Ukraine. And then the migration crisis broke out on the Belarusian-Polish border, and the Polesie operation began. Of course, behind this are people in the West – the customers of the coup d’état in Belarus, in order to remove Alexander Lukashenko from power, to create another puppet anti-Russian and anti-Russian state from Belarus. And further create a military crisis against Russia, but from the territory of the Republic of Belarus. More precisely, to continue to strangle our country with the help of the “anaconda ring”.

“SP”: – Why does Ukraine rely on the national battalions, and not the Armed Forces of Ukraine? At the moment, there are up to 10 thousand military personnel near the Belarusian borders… Are these few?

– The national battalions are just called upon to transfer to the territory of Belarus the ideas of Russophobia, hatred for Russia, its peoples, the Russian language, culture, our common past, especially with regard to the heroic history of defending our common Fatherland.

And there is practically nothing new here. Suffice it to recall the plot of the movie “The Thought of Kovpak”. It shows the mechanisms of the Nazi command to discredit the actions of the division of Soviet partisans under the command Kolpak in the eyes of the population of Ukraine and Belarus with the help of punitive actions of Ukrainian nationalists against the local population, dressed in the uniform of the Red Army. That is, nationalists are needed to carry out complex, and at the same time dirty work – disinformation of the population living on the Ukrainian-Belarusian border on both sides, and to carry out provocations against the same population, in order to form and develop anti-Belarusian and anti-Russian, and in general anti-Russian sentiments.

“SP”: – Will the border guards of Belarus stand? Or will you have to use the aria?

— I am sure that the Belarusian border guards will resist. They have long been ready for such negative scenarios. The Belarusian border guards will resort to the help of their army only as a last resort.

“SP”: – How should Russia react in the event of such a development of events?

– Russia will come to the aid of official Minsk at its request. At the same time, as the events related to Kazakhstan have already shown, such assistance from official Moscow will be provided without delay, implemented in a short time and with high efficiency.

“I do not rule out that there is some kind of build-up of the contingent,” says Associate Professor of the Financial University under the Government of the Russian Federation Gevorg Mirzayan.

– Especially near the junction of the borders of Russia, Belarus and Ukraine. However, it would be strange to say that some kind of invasion of Belarus is being prepared there. Why is it Kiev? What will this invasion give Ukraine? Sanctions against Russia? They won’t. Sanctions against Lukashenka? They are not really needed now. Is it necessary for Russia, within the framework of the CSTO, to hit Ukraine in response? So it will no longer be formally a Russian invasion (unlike, for example, the entry of Russian contingents into the DPR and LPR to protect the locals).

Protecting the territory of Belarus within the framework of the CSTO will not be an attack on Ukraine. Protection of Donbass through the introduction of troops will be.

Does Ukraine have a motive for attacks on the territory of Belarus? Who exactly? No. There are no such motives. There is no state, party or personal reason for the Ukrainian elites in this. Not even ideological.

This is a senseless waste of energy, rating, resource of support from the West.

“SP”: – Why radical nationalists? Can they organize a provocation? But how serious?

– Because, firstly, these are the most ideologically charged fighters. Second, it’s cannon fodder. They are not sorry. The more Natsiks disposed of by Moscow or Minsk, the better for Kiev. But – once again – it is better to send them for recycling to the DPR and LPR. Proku more.

“SP”: – A Will Belarus be able to repulse the attack on its own, without getting involved in a war with Ukraine? Is a full-fledged war between Ukraine and Belarus possible?

– In itself, protection from attack is drawing into the war. Well, this will require strikes in depth by the advancing units (which will not just run across the border, but under cover). But, once again, this war will not happen. Ukraine does not need it. Belarus probably doesn’t either. But escalating the situation – yes, Lukashenka needs this to mobilize the electorate.
