Belarus sees U.S. increased military presence in Europe as further militarization of region

MINSK, 21 February (BelTA) -  We see the U.S. increased military presence in the European region and the concentration of coalition troops (forces) on NATO's eastern flank, including in the immediate proximity to the borders of Belarus, as evidence of the further militarization of Europe, Colonel Valery Revenko, Head of the International Military Cooperation Department, Aide for International Military Cooperation to the Belarusian Defense Minister, told the media after a press briefing for representatives of the military-diplomatic corps accredited with the Defense Ministry of Belarus, BelTA has learned. 

"Given the confidence and security crisis in the European region, a huge amount of incomplete, unreliable, and sometimes deliberately false information, it is extremely important that you receive information about the Armed Forces of Belarus and our assessment of the military-political situation from the first hands," Valery Revenko said addressing the audience. 

Valery Revenko believes that the objective assessment of the ongoing global and regional processes and a timely and adequate response to them are essential for the military security of any state.

Valery Revenko also spoke about the processes that increase the likelihood of military conflicts near the borders of Belarus and the involvement of the Belarusian state in them. In particular, these include the militarization of the European continent and the U.S. control over political processes in Europe which it has tightened through NATO membership or various forms of partnership with NATO. The military interaction of NATO member states with Belarus has been suspended.

The continued high-level military presence of the United States in the European region and the concentration of coalition troops (forces) on NATO's eastern flank, including in the immediate proximity to the borders of Belarus are the evidence of the further militarization of Europe,” Valery Revenko stressed. 

Valery Revenko added that the NATO military units stationed in Eastern European countries are actively involved in operational and combat training. The exercises are highly intensive, with an ever growing number of forces and means involved, including on the territory of the states bordering Belarus.
