MINSK, 11 May (BelTA) – State Secretary of the Security Council of Belarus Aleksandr Volfovich visited the areas where battalion tactical groups, which are supposed to enhance the protection of the Belarusian-Ukrainian border, are deployed on 11 May, BelTA has learned.
Aleksandr Volfovich talked to commanding officers of the army units and to the military personnel on combat duty in the deployment areas of the battalion tactical groups. The official noted: “We cannot but be concerned about the situation at Belarus' southern border. It forms additional risks and challenges to our national security. Among other things it enables conditions for provocations. We are not going to attack anyone but the development of the situation near the border makes us respond to it.”
Aleksandr Volfovich praised the preparedness of the units for carrying out combat operations and the moral and psychological state of the personnel. He was also made familiar with how maintenance of weapons, military and special hardware is organized as well as the daily life of the army personnel.
