Lukashenka's provocation: Belarus pulls army forces to the Russian border

According to information available to a number of media outlets, the Belarusian authorities are pulling a military machinery... Thus, Minsk decided to go for a serious escalation of relations with Moscow.

A column of armored vehicles - army trucks and armored personnel carriers - is moving along the highway towards the state border with the Russian Federation from the Republic of Belarus. The column is located several kilometers from the border points.

Judging by the video posted on the Web, Belarusian military equipment, consisting of about ten armored personnel carriers, was seen near the border of the two states. This is far from the only case of the movement of military units of the Armed Forces of Belarus in the border zone with Russia in recent days. It is still difficult to speak about the purpose of such a demarche in Minsk - according to the supposition of the opposition forces, Lukashenka intends to close the border with the Russian Federation in the near future. However, the authorities of Russia's “western neighbor” deny such rumors.

Apparently, such a provocation by Lukashenka is connected with the recent events in Minsk - near the Belarusian capital, three dozen soldiers of the so-called PMC “Wagner”, dressed in military camouflage, were detained. The hired servicemen did not have weapons with them. Later they were accused of extremism, but no evidence of this has yet been presented.

    The source of the video "Novaya Gazeta", of course, is the same garbage dump where and when they were filming - it is not clear, but .... This may well happen and fits well into the logic of events. The chairman is preparing for the Maidan. Citizens of Belarus, if possible, prepare an alternate airfield outside the "principality", lay straws, so to speak ....

      Are they going to vote against Lukashenka? Even then, even if Lukashenka is going to Rostov, it will be cheaper and, you see, real integration of economies will begin. request Unless, of course, national patriots come to power. The vacuum can be filled quickly and, as the history of Ukraine shows, not the most worthy, but the most corrupt people ...

        It's all. No matter who votes for whom, devastation will affect everyone.

        Even then Lukashenka will go to Rostov - it will be cheaper and, you see, the real integration of economies will begin

    Are Russians and Belarusians brothers forever? Even before the time of Gorbachev, we listened to these tales about our "brothers" Poles, Romanians, Hungarians, Bulgarians, Czechoslovakians, Balts, and now Ukrainians, Armenians, Azerbaijanis, and Belarusians, and where are they now .... As they say, a holy place empty does not happen, and our "partners" from behind the hill. For a long time they placed their people in the ruling circles of these countries, and now these "brother countries" hate us fiercely ... And what about our SCO, our CSTO, EAC - this is so, one tinsel with Kazakhs, Uzbeks and Tajiks, we are also fiercely hating, but fattening on our handouts, and this cannot last long. It is better to be one, gathered in a heap, shoulder to shoulder, and at the slightest incidents, immediately give in the teeth, and not play around and curry favor with the same Father. ON-TO-EAT !!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Remember the times of the USSR. Then any vote in the UN or other international organizations of the USSR always had very solid support from the world community. Why is Russia always left alone now? Even such "friends" as Belarus and Kazakhstan, substitute Russia even for trifles. And on the issue of Ukraine and Crimea, their position is practically no different from that of Europe. The only difference is that they have not yet introduced sanctions. And although the world has become more cynical and meaner, but Russia remains Russia. What is the reason? Sadly, but in politics (as opposed to private life) you have to make friends, or rather buy. The USSR made friends, so the votes were in favor of the USSR, and demonstrations for world peace were held. True, they didn't buy Chelsea, they didn't hold the Winter Olympics in Kutaisi or Samarkand, and, of course, they lived more modestly. Friends are expensive, and brothers even more so. But the title of "great power" it obliges, otherwise we have what we have.

    And what are Lukashenka's "provocations"? Will he really provoke an incident on the border with the Russian Federation and move the Smolensk region and Smolensk to "attach and return to their home harbor"? Or is he afraid that the "brothers" might come to "save the Russians," as in Crimea and Donbas?

    Lukashenko, under the guise of Wagner's PMC, raised an army to, just in case, suppress, so to speak, the color revolution ...
    And the West does not bark, and the army is on the alert ... But Father is smart.

    The Belarusians were bred as children. If the PMC fighters are caught, it means that they were given such a task, to walk along the border until they are caught. Moreover, in uniform, not disguised as mushroom pickers. Who benefits from this?) Russia, what would YON escape from NATO?)
    It was the Americans who sent Russian-speaking provocateurs to get caught and hint at the Russian trail. As a result, the escalation of the conflict, Putin is out of business, Father is hysterical, the Americans laugh ...
