NATO’s neighboring countries are strengthening their military capabilities and intelligence activities. This was stated by the chief of the main department of the General Staff of the country’s armed forces Ruslan Kosygin on the air of the ONT TV channel on August 30.

According to him, recently, in the territory of neighboring countries, “unprecedented measures have been taken to build up both their own military potential and the ability to receive and deploy foreign contingents on their territory”.

Kosygin added that “intelligence activity has been seriously intensified” against Belarus.

“Already today, on the territory of neighboring states with our country, a contingent of troops, numbering more than 10,000 people, more than 40 combat aircraft, more than 500 units of heavy military equipment, is on a permanent basis,” the TV channel’s website quotes the commander.

Earlier on Sunday, the Ministry of Defense of Belarus reported that the composition of the armed forces of the state is conducting exercises to eliminate a mock enemy that has crossed the border in the western direction. A comprehensive tactical exercise in the Grodno direction is held from 28 to 31 August.

The Ministry of Defense of Belarus announced on August 18 about the beginning of scheduled aviation flights near the state border.

A few days later, President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko said that for the first time in a quarter of a century he had to make the most serious decision, bringing the main forces of the army to full combat readiness in connection with the activity of NATO troops near the country’s borders.

The Ministry of Defense of the republic announced on August 24 that within the framework of the third stage of a comprehensive check of the combat readiness of the country’s armed forces, individual military units will be brought to the highest degree of combat readiness.

In Belarus, since August 9, protests have not abated. On that day, presidential elections were held, in which Alexander Lukashenko won for the sixth time in a row with a score of 80.1%. Those who disagreed with these results began to take to the streets.
