MINSK, 29 November (BelTA) – Belarus is dragged into the military escalation campaign in the region, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at a meeting on military security in the strategic control center of the Defense Ministry on 29 November.

“We have gathered together today to discuss issues connected with the national security of our country. Look at the map. All of you understand what is going on around our Belarus. I want those present at this meeting to realize one thing: we cannot consider the situation around Belarus in an autonomous way, regardless of the events in the Black Sea basin, regardless of the issues connected with Ukraine, Poland, the Baltic countries. Belarus is a link in this common chain,” Aleksandr Lukashenko stressed.

According to the president, the intentions of opponents or, if we put it bluntly, enemies of Belarus are still unknown. But they can be imagined. “The number of flights of scout aircraft above Kaliningrad Oblast has increased. Military events are being held in neighboring countries, and we already see it. Like the defense minister of Russia is saying, if dozens of aircraft are flying around the borders of Russia and have bombs dropping exercises (it was stated that they rehearsed a nuclear strike against Russia), if lateral communication lines are being built on adjacent territories (the military are well aware of it), if large-scale exercises with the transportation of troops closer to our borders are being held, it means that they must have certain intentions,” the head of state said.
