Reports of discord between Russian and Belarusian soldiers are increasing, leading to an uncontrolled escalation of tension in Belarus.

On Nov. 6, Ukrainian military intelligence reported numerous conflicts between Belarusian and Russian soldiers, notably related to the disrespectful attitude of Russian soldiers towards their Belarusian counterparts. At the same time, it transpires that the military police of the Republic of Belarus are unable to restrain the behavior of the Russians.

“Reports submitted by senior officers based on the complaints of ordinary servicemen indicate dismissive statements and behavior of Russians towards Belarusians. In particular, this includes use of humiliation based on ethnic characteristics,” the military intelligence source noted.

On Oct. 16, according to the Ministry of Defense of Belarus, 9,000 Russian soldiers arrived in Belarus as part of a joint regional grouping of the two countries’ forces. This was agreed by Russian President Vladimir Putin and Belarusian president Alexander Lukashenko on Oct. 10.

In late October, Ukrainian military intelligence and the General Command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported that Belarus possessed insufficient resources for an offensive. This followed fears of a possible renewed attack on Kyiv from the north.

Still, according to Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) spokesman Yevhen Silkin, the likelihood of an offensive from Belarus may increase in the spring.

“The probability of the aggressor repeating its invasion of Ukraine from Belarus is very low, but it cannot be completely excluded,” Silkin said on Oct.20. “According to our assessment, by the end of the year, the enemy will not be able to accumulate enough forces and funds for a second offensive. But in the spring, such a threat may increase significantly,” he added.

According to Silkin, both the Kremlin and Belarusian regimes are participating in a joint military operation. For its part, Belarus is providing airspace, material support and ammunition. In addition, most of the Belarusian armed forces are stationed along the border areas.

According to the head of the Department of International Military Cooperation of Belarus Valery Revenko, Belarus reserves the right to conduct preventive strategic deterrence measures to avoid an attack or to neutralize an internal armed conflict.

  1. I hope that the Belarusian soldiers will soon realize that they are no longer a sovereign nation. It really should be obvious by now. At least, they are learning what it means to be infested by such filthy cockroaches.

    On a side note, if UA intelligence knows about such matters, they know a whole lot more about the situation in Belarus. Maybe we’ll see some surprises soon in this regard.

  2. If this keeps up we may see a bunch of rashists littering the fields of Belarus. Since Loony bags potatoes so well, maybe he can get a new job tagging and bagging them and clearing minefields after that.
