U.S. sees no signs suggesting Belarus preparing direct attack on Ukraine
That’s according to White House Security Council coordinator John Kirby, who spoke at a briefing on Tuesday, Ukrinform's own correspondent reports.
"We have not seen any indication that the Belarusian military or the Belarusian government plans to more tangibly support Russia in terms of putting their troops in the fight in Ukraine," the White House official noted.
At the same time, he emphasized that the Belarusian regime had already provided direct support to Russian aggression.
"The Russians continue to use Belarus as a staging base and as a place from which they can and have continued to launch strikes inside Ukraine," Kirby said.
As Ukrinform reported earlier, the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine reported on Tuesday some Russian forces, which had been undergoing training in Belarus, crossed out of the country.
