MINSK, 16 May (BelTA) – There can be any kind of provocations from Ukraine, First Deputy Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Belarus Igor Korol told the STV TV channel, BelTA informs.

“There is objective evidence suggesting that American counter-battery stations are deployed near our border in the Ovruch area. To date, Ukraine has amassed about 10,000 troops against the Republic of Belarus in the Rovno direction. There are 6,000 of them in the Ovruch direction, and 4,500 in the Chernigov direction. There are artillery units armed with the most advanced American weapons and air defense units among them,” Igor Korol said.

The first deputy chief of the General Staff emphasized: “The Ukrainians are mining roads and bridges in the territory adjacent to ours, conducting enhanced patrols with reinforced units. Everyone is armed, everyone has assault weapons, so there can be any provocations.”
