MINSK, 30 December (BelTA) – There is a whole cohort of politicians in Ukraine that are dreaming of Belarus joining the war against Ukraine on Russia's side, Russian military observer, retired colonel Viktor Baranets said in a new episode of the V Teme [On Point] project on BelTA's YouTube channel.
“It cannot be ruled out that this was a deliberate provocation. Here you need to dig very deep, get to Kiev sources (we have them), listen to what Russian and Belarusian intelligence services have to say. Perhaps something unexpected will be revealed. Indeed, naturally, Ukraine has a whole clan of hawks and politicians who simply dream of Belarus entering the war against Ukraine on Russia's side. This will open the door to NATO for them,” Viktor Baranets said.
The expert added: “I believe that we should consider all the possibilities, including this one. One of them is a key to understanding how and why this stupid and mysterious missile landing occurred.”
