On the side of Ukraine in the war with the Russian Federation, 1.5 thousand people are fighting in Belarusian battalions.

The leader of the Belarusian opposition, Svetlana Tikhanovskaya, spoke about this in an interview with the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera .

According to her, after the start of the full-scale invasion of the Russian Federation, many Belarusians wanted to help the Ukrainians, a battalion was formed.

“Currently, there are 1.5 thousand people. In fact, he (the battalion – UNIAN) is not alone: ​​there are several of them in different cities, under the supervision of the Ukrainian army,” she said.

Tikhanovskaya stressed that the ranks of those wishing to fight on the Ukrainian side continue to grow. 

“Many people in Belarus want to help Ukraine and are currently being trained in other countries. How many of them and where they are, I am not allowed to say. Often these are people who need training because they have no experience of war. But for sure the number of Belarusian fighters on the side of Ukraine will grow,” the oppositionist noted. 

Recall that earlier Svetlana Tikhanovskaya said that the military command of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Belarus received an order to attack Ukraine . She told why the higher officer ranks slowed him down.

  1. Loony should be deposed as soon as possible and the real president put into office in Minsk. This would bring a lot of advantages. Ukraine would have a friend in the north instead of another enemy to worry about from this direction. Belarus’ border with mafia land could be guarded by both Ukrainian and Belarusian forces. Why not? Ukraine has forces at the Belarusian border anyhow, and so it doesn’t matter if they are on the Ukraine-Belarus border or Belarus-mafia border. We could use Belarus as a corridor for weapon shipments from the Baltics and send grain the other way.
