As part of the second stage of inspecting the Belarusian immediate reaction forces, special operations troops will be deployed near the border with Ukraine.

The relevant statement was made by Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Belarus Viktor Gulevich, an Ukrinform correspondent reports, referring to the Belarusian Defense Ministry.

“In order  to ensure the security of the Republic of Belarus in the Southern direction, special operations forces will be deployed in three tactical areas,” the report states.

In addition, battalion tactical groups were moved to the Western and Northwestern operational directions (i.e. to the border with Poland, Lithuania and Latvia). For reinforcement purposes, air defense, missile and artillery units are also deployed, as ‘the United States and its Allies are reshuffling troops’ near the Belarusian border.

A reminder that the inspection of the Belarusian immediate reaction forces was suddenly launched on May 4, 2022.
