President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko for the first time in 25 years brought his country’s army into full combat readiness. The Supreme Commander announced the need to protect the borders against the background of large NATO exercises near the country’s borders at a time when opposition protests are taking place inside Belarus.
Warsaw has already stated that Minsk has nothing to worry about and the exercises are not an act of pressure or aggression. However, the Belarusian authorities resolutely redeployed tanks, artillery, and other weapons to the Hrodna region in the west of the country.
It should be noted that this region of Belarus is an analog of Western Ukraine, which once belonged to Poland and became a mainstay for the coup in the country. There are also strong separatist sentiments and in packs of “cards of the Pole. Therefore, it is not surprising that Lukashenko demanded from the military to firmly defend the territorial integrity of the Belarusian state.
Minsk is well aware that Warsaw can decide to invade. All its history it tried unsuccessfully to become a world-class empire. In the autumn of 1938, Poland even participated in the “dismemberment” of Czechoslovakia together with the Third Reich, and the West fully approved this step. In fact, that was when the Second World War began.
Now on the territory of Poland run trains, which are drawn maps of the Commonwealth with a list of cities, including Hrodna. At the same time, the Commonwealth, like Poland from 1918-1939, was remembered by Belarusians on the negative side. Warsaw unceremoniously militias, rolled out Belarusians and forbade the Russian language. Now the Polish nationalists are promoting their next project – “Between the Sea.”They are introducing troops – and Belarus can be put across
Lukashenko said during a visit to the military training ground near Hrodna, where he discussed the situation near the borders and inside the country.
The geopolitical ambitions of Warsaw, which is disguised as the European Union and NATO, are well known to the leadership of Belarus, and the historical memory has not yet been “euro-integrated” among the majority of the Belarusian people. Therefore, Minsk regarded what was happening as a real Polish threat to the independence of their country.
